No Such Thing as a Lost Cause

About Lifeline-connect

Substance abuse is rampant, but there is a safe place where men can experience recovery while discovering God's purpose for their lives. Lifeline-connect is a Christian faith-based solution to life-controlling drug and alcohol addictions. Our mission is to help men rebuild their lives emotionally, financially, physically, socially and spiritually. This residential learning center provides a healthy and stable environment where men are able to focus on their recovery and receive the community support they need.

Get Your Custom Laser Engraved Bricks Today!

Inspired by Deut 5:33, a brick path will be added to the front entrance of the new dorm.
Every resident will cross over this path daily — reminded, encouraged, and inspired to “stay to the path” they are on to recovery. 

The bricks will be laser engraved —the best technology in brick and stone engraving.
It creates a permanent marking on the brick, that cannot be worn away over time to the elements or foot traffic.
Your part in this path to recovery will last for generations—both in the path, and the effect Lifeline-connect has with men AND their families. 

You are invited to contribute. 
4×8 bricks have up to 3 lines of text.
8×8 bricks have up to 6 lines of text.
Use up to 20 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation.
