The North County Lifeline (following referred to as Lifeline) Parent Support Service’s purpose is to provide drop in services for children between the ages of 2-12 during designated session times. This program provides the opportunity for the parent/guardian to meet with Lifeline staff/interns/trainees confidentially if needed, without the child(ren) present and/or for the siblings of the child to not be in the scheduled session. In addition, this will increase the safety of the child(ren) beyond the lobby area.
