Life-Line Convalescent Ministries was founded in February of 2000 with a vision to minister in local San Diego convalescent and retirement communities and beyond.* "Our mission is to communicate God’s love in order to share the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ." With nearly 200 volunteers, we provide non-denominational services in the form of Bible studies, church services, and friendly room visitation to over 60 senior facilities in San Diego each week. We also supply needed personal items requested by residents such as toothpaste, socks, undergarments, and wheelchairs. All church services are based on the Word of God. Grief counseling is also provided through Life-Line. If you would like to learn more about our ministry, please visit our website at www.life-lineministries.com.

A great organization. So enlightening to visit the patients. I have worked in Healthcare setting prior to me volunteering, so I understood why I should be there with the awesome Christians to devote our love for God to everyone we see.
After a number of years living away from family, I wanted to give back to the community and sincerely show love to those who might feel left behind or forgotten due to disability. I thought, “I would have given my time to family if I were home anyway, so why not adopt a parent or grandparent who might really enjoy the company.” My experience as a Life-Line Room Visitor gave me an even bigger heart for those living in senior homes. Many of the people are so sweet, funny and can tell you so many stories about their younger years. It’s really sad to think many of these people don’t get as many visitors as they should. They were just like us once. To see these people enjoy the simplest little things we often take for granted, such as being able to easily access music or get out of bed to take a walk outside, it’s hard not to feel thankful for what you have and make you think of picking up the phone to call your own grandma! Definitely consider volunteering for Life-Line!
