OUR TREE CANOPY STRATEGY

  • Lifeline has 5 core service areas, and in each of those areas, we have key government contracts or stable funding to support the programmatic tree. 
  • Rather than 5 separate trees, we have a tree canopy where we share and leverage contracts and funds across the organization. 
  • It also symbolically represents our desire to integrate services across the organization, break-down programmatic silos, and wrap services around youth, adults, and their families to achieve self-reliance.
