WHAT IS LIFELINE?
For 50 years, Lifeline has existed to provide Elkhart youth with caring role models who teach
basic life skills and develop student leaders.
Lifeline does this through a variety of programs ranging from athletics, camps, and small group
mentoring to trade skills training and internships - all of which are designed in such a way to
demonstrate the love of God and communicate His message to transform lives.
HOW DO WE KNOW LIFELINE HAS IMPACT?
All current Lifeline leadership staff are
products of the program (former
Lifeline participants and interns).
Lifeline's vocational trades program has
renovated 10 buildings with 21 housing
units and has generated $1.7M of value -
in just three years!
Lifeline currently serves 450 students
per week, with a significant unmet
demand to serve more.
Lifeline has a proven track record of
developing connections that influence
behavioral change, facilitating
vocational development, and promoting
general wellness.

The new HUB greatly increases
interactions per student by expanding
operating hours and multiplying the
number of groups served at one time.
The HUB also provides more efficient and
effective delivery of services by centralizing
location versus the current model of
multiple locations per day. This enables
better productivity of staff and better
quality programming.
The HUB is a new 36,000 square foot facility centrally located in downtown Elkhart (at
Hively/Prairie), strategically located in the center of more than 6,000 underserved school-aged
children.
The HUB will contain multiple classrooms, two full gymnasiums, and serve as the epicenter for all
Lifeline programs and student interactions.
