Pacific Lifeline is a Christian long-term transitional homeless shelter for women and children. We are privately funded and accept no governmental funding for our services. We prepare women and their children for independent living and transition to self-sufficiency. We provide job training, social services, therapy and budget training. We do not have a set time period by which all goals must be accomplished, but the average stay of each resident is approximately 3 months. Residents live in a shelter which previously served as a women's dormitory for a private college, so each resident and her family have their own bed and bath areas. Residents share kitchen and living room areas.
