"Lifeline supports therapists through ongoing training and professional development opportunities. I started at Lifeline as a new Master’s graduate. I have progressed from a Home-Based Therapist to a Licensed Therapist to a Supervising Therapist to the Director of our In-Home Family Counseling Program within five years. Lifeline has encouraged me to develop all of my skills and has provided opportunities for me to use my gifts to both serve our clients and further our mission as an agency."

Since 1968, Lifeline has been committed to providing hope to families who need it most. We have over 350 trained and qualified staff working in our programs 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 fulfilling our mission of changing hearts and bringing hope to a generation at risk. 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.
Due to Lifeline’s continuing expansion, growth opportunities are frequently available. Whether it be promotional opportunities within your program, crossing over into other departments, or even exploring international opportunities at Crosswinds’ Caribbean Mountain Academy, all employees will have the chance to explore a variety of professional options. Lifeline also offers a limited education reimbursement program.
Nobody at Lifeline denies the challenges that arise when engaging hurting families. Therefore, Lifeline works with 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 supervise a child’s field trip, participate in community events, or simply gear down some morning at a coffee shop of your choice.
Perhaps the greatest benefit 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.
