North County Lifeline’s mission is to build self-reliance among youth, adults, and families through high-quality, community-based services.

“ My biggest fear was getting older because of what the Crown Heights streets would do. Club Crown Heights made me the man I am today. Now I can say I am the first in my family to graduate and attended a 4-year college at Cal State San Marcos, setting my sights on graduating with a degree in Psychology. ”

- Jose, Youth Program Alumni
