Our Programs

Our outreach programs target at-risk individuals of all ages, regardless of their situation. We work with youths, teenagers and adults with unstable homes, gang backgrounds, traumatic events and much more. We nurture every person’s mind and spirit, to show them there’s a path outside of drugs, violence and crime.

We offer mental and emotional counseling with a broad range of focuses, as well as individual and family programs

Some of our focuses include breaking dependencies, overcoming trauma, rehabilitation after incarceration and more.

  • Beyond counseling, we also provide the resources people need to take positive steps in their lives. This includes access to recreational sports and arts, GED and post-secondary education preparation, job services and more.
  • Everything we do is geared towards prevention, intervention, and re-entry programming, with an emphasis on love, security, and safety.
  • The Executive Director of Life-Line Colorado is Leo Alirez, a former gang member and Denver native who has worked with at-risk populations and those struggling with substance abuse for over a decade.
