HELP | LIFELINE, NON-RESIDENTIAL SERVICES

MEETING WOMEN WITH LOVE, HOPE, PRAYER AND ANSWERS

LifeLine is the frontline to all LifeHouse services answered by a licensed professional counselor. Women are contacted within 24 hours of applying for help or a bed. The below are several stories that took place recently with women who called in.

Lacy | She was pregnant and scared. Feeling like there was no other alternative, she made an appointment for an abortion. Waiting in the clinic, she changed her mind and reached out to LifeHouse. She found hope through the LifeLine hotline, the ministry’s frontline crisis service. Instead of an abortion, this woman became a LifeHouse resident.

Sarah | Frantic, a woman reached out to LifeHouse in hopes that someone would answer quickly. She was eight months pregnant and being physically abused. Through LifeLine, the authorities were dispatched and the woman was placed into a safe house.

Hannah | Sitting in class, a pregnant teen began searching for alternatives to running away from home as her parents were insisting on an abortion. Feeling alone and scared, she contacted LifeHouse. Through LifeLine, the teen and her parents were presented with choices and hope. The teen became a resident the same day.
