PROPÓSITO
LifeLine, Inc.’s three main purposes are to provide support, educación, and resources to families affected by disabilities, whether they be chronic or temporary, médica o educativa, or physical or mental. LifeLine, Inc. is currently focused on assisting families of children with disabilities, aged birth to 22, regardless of diagnosis type or existence. Sin embargo, the organization’s ultimate goal is to provide lifespan services to families affected by disability.

Apoyo
LifeLine, Inc. knows that families with special needs often feel overwhelmed, aislado, and misunderstood. Support from sources that truly comprehend their struggles is invaluable. Below are some of the organization’s outreach efforts provided by those personally affected by disability and focused on supporting and uplifting such families:

  • FamilyShare – Frequent family support groups that are not diagnosis-specific.
  • Hoja informativa & LifeLineOnline – A bi-monthly newsletter and up-to-date website that keep families informed about upcoming LifeLine events and trainings, disability related community activities, and breaking news affecting the disability community.
  • Grupo de Facebook – Encima 1,100 people have joined the Lifeline, Inc. Facebook group to get ideas, hacer preguntas, y aprender acerca de las actividades y eventos locales. Click here to join.
  • ParentLink – LifeLine, Inc.’s Caregiver Mentoring Program. Families affected by disability are connected to other, more experienced families to gain support, educación, and advocacy. Families who then become comfortable in their roles as caregivers, have opportunities to become mentors themselves.

Educación
It is important for families and communities affected by disability to have clear and precise information about medical diagnoses and their related educational rights and responsibilities. They also need help understanding the real life ramifications of these issues. To that end, LifeLine, Inc. provides workshops and trainings to families, escuelas, profesionales, educadores, e iglesias.
