At Community Lifeline Center – one of North Collin County’s oldest and most respected human services organizations – the day begins and ends with a battle over four letter words. Community Lifeline Center is where people arrive every day seeking “help”, because they are “lost”, in “fear” and in “need”.
They turn to Community Lifeline Center for help in managing short term crises. People-some of whom may be your friends, or neighbors – who have never asked for help before, but are overwhelmed by the unplanned, the unexpected, the unmanageable. Rent assistance, utilities, clothing, pharmacy, job counseling, resume preparation: these are just some of the services Community Lifeline Center provides to help keep families in their home, and contributing to the community.
The real service Community Lifeline Center provides is best illustrated in a letter from a recent client.
“The day I walked into your center it was heartening to see how from beginning to end you’re not [sic] longer alone with your problems. At Community Lifeline Center you find people who listen without criticism, who share their love and care, who focus on helping solve your issues…
You people are great at inspiring the best in us.”
So, how do the staff and volunteers at Community Lifeline Center battle all those four letter words? With one of their own: HOPE. It’s what every visitor to Community Lifeline Center leaves with. It’s what turns despair and desperation into inspiration.
