Help Provide a Lifetime of SupportLifehouse is unique in its ability to provide support to an individual throughout his or her lifetime. It’s important for us to not only plan for tomorrow, but for decades.Help Protect Our Most Vulnerable

As this growing number of children begin to reach adulthood, the need for support services will also increase.
