For over 60 years, our agency has worked to help those in Southwest Alabama work though problems of everyday life stress all the way to crisis & trauma. Through our various programs, Lifelines Counseling Services offers family and financial counseling; crisis services for homicide, suicide, and sexual assault; and also referrals through the United Way 211 information line.
