Pacific Lifeline, a faith-based ministry, empowers women and their children facing chronic homelessness and helps them achieve personal and social stability. Our purpose is to eliminate the threat of chronic homelessness for these families, providing the structure that allows them to establish a solid foundation and gain self-sufficiency. Our strategic program and commitment to the long-term stability of the families we serve distinguishes us from other shelters.


Pacific Lifeline’s legacy has its roots in San Francisco: “Lifeline Ministries” began in the early 1900’s as a street ministry to sailors, and then a rescue mission to the destitute. In 1989, it transitioned to a community-based shelter for homeless women and their children. Since November 1995, the program has been located in Upland, California, continuing the mission of empowering homeless families on a path to self-sufficiency.


Pacific Lifeline successfully establishes long-term stability for single-mother families. We provide the structure through which families build a foundation that enables them to achieve self-sufficiency. Upon completion, women are equipped to maintain housing and employment, meet their children's needs, and continue working on the insight they have gained into their own needs and behaviors.

Touch the lives of homeless women and their children


What has God given you that you can share with others? We look forward to partnering with you in serving the homeless women and children that God places within our care.


Pray for Pacific Lifeline, its residents, graduates, staff and board.

Help Us Monthly

There are many practical aspects that are required in the daily journey of providing hope to families. Food for hungry children, detergent for clean clothes, access to a computer for job applications, heat for warmth in the winter, and school supplies for budding scholars are a few examples.

Residential Home

Our residents live in a safe home-like atmosphere with their own furnished living space. We provide groceries, paper products, cleaning supplies, toiletries, and baby supplies. Also, proper clothing is provided for school and work.

Women's Program

Case management includes career and budget counseling and job and housing search support.  Therapists provide individual and family therapy, group therapy, parenting support and life skills education.  Tutoring is provided as needed.

Children's Program

The therapy team provides individual and sibling counseling, developmental play sessions, and group activities. Children receive tutoring and support for school work, outings and birthday parties and family enrichment activities.

Extended Care

Once a family leaves our shelter, we become their extended family! We continue to provide individual and family therapy, life skills workshops, and Christmas and Back to School programs, as well as access to food, essentials, and community resources.
