We recognize & assist
Here at Life-Line Colorado, we assist our local at-risk population in finding love, acceptance and safety. We focus on youth and adults alike, offering support and resources they may not have, to help them discover opportunities they may not have been given. Our mission is to spread love, security and safety throughout Denver, CO, and to see it ripple through our local communities.
