Since 2009, Lifeline to Success has been working with violent offenders in Memphis to help them leave behind lives of crime, and transform themselves into productive members of society. We do it with the help of partners like The City of Memphis, Playback Memphis—and, of course, with the support of donors.
Using Christian principles we provide the support and tools necessary to unleash the transformation of violent ex-offenders into assets for society, changing the negative perceptions that are associated with a criminal record.
WHO WE SERVE:
Most of our participants are still leading a criminal life when they join Lifeline. They haven’t thrived in the traditional systems that nurture growth in our society—they’ve been branded “lost causes.” They are struggling. They have a willingness to change, but they don’t know how to respond safely in a violent world. Our approach at Lifeline works because we honor that willingness and accept people where they are.
