Wonderful people work at this organization who are focused on values and beliefs.

Lifeline feels like a family.

My colleagues are strong therapists and Family Consultants are easy to work with.  My Supervising Therapist and Regional Coordinator are also very supportive and helpful. Although we are like islands at times, I don’t feel alone.

Serving others is the calling at the foundation of Lifeline’s
​principles and practices.


Lifeline really cares about me, and my family, so that I can take care of my clients, but also take care of my own family.

 Changing Hearts and Bringing Hope

Opportunities to Make a Difference!


For more than 50 years, Lifeline Youth & Family Services has been committed to changing hearts and bringing hope to youth and families who need it most.  At Lifeline, and our sister organization Crosswinds, we have nearly 700 trained and qualified staff working to provide the guidance and support necessary for families to become successfully independent from the social welfare systems. Through programs like home-based services, residential treatment, and alternative education, we’re helping individuals and families discover solutions that will allow them to reclaim control, rebuild relationships, and restore hope. We're a place where social service careers are made and opportunities to grow both professionally and personally are available to employees at every level.









CAREER GROWTH
Due to Lifeline’s continuing expansion, growth opportunities are frequently available. Whether it is promotional opportunities within your program, crossing over into other departments, or even exploring international opportunities at Crosswinds’ Caribbean Mountain Academy, all employees have the chance to explore a variety of professional options. Lifeline also offers a limited education reimbursement program, competitive benefits, and compensation packages to retain quality staff.    

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING
At Lifeline, we know there are challenges that arise when engaging hurting families.  We work with our employees to maintain balanced lives, particularly when it comes to scheduling. Evening work is common, but most employees also have the flexibility to plan their schedules. Lifeline encourages employees to spend time with their families, recharge when needed, and ensure they are taking care of themselves to establish a healthy work/life balance.

LONG-TERM IMPACT
Perhaps the greatest benefit at Lifeline is the opportunity to impact lives. Every day, employees interact with families on their turf. The challenges are great, but so is the opportunity to permanently alter the course of a family’s future.
