Lifeline’s CEO, Mark Terrell, is assisted by the leadership team to manage the more than 500 employees of the organization. Each of Lifeline’s programs, including our residential treatment for teens and home-based counseling for families, also has a director to manage the delivery of service in the program.

As a nonprofit organization, we are led by a Board of Directors that includes men and women who are committed to strengthening families. Our Board guides and directs the vision of our organization as we head into the future. 




Lifeline Youth & Family Services, Inc. began in 1968 when a small group of business leaders felt compelled to do something to help kids in trouble who desperately needed a safe and loving home.
