Ladies Living Free & Lifeline Ministries
LLF is the ladies division of Paducah Lifeline Ministries, Inc. located in Paducah. The mission of the ministries is to offer freedom to individuals with life controlling problems through faith in Jesus Christ. They are committed to helping people learn to become responsible, accountable, stable and productive citizens as their lives are transformed by Jesus Christ.
PLM helps individuals overcome their problems through a unique Christian residential facility. Their recovery program addresses the whole person: spiritual, emotional and physical. It incorporates the five components of recovery: accountability, boundaries, consistency, decision making and peer group choices.
Their program requires six months of residential followed by three months of aftercare. PLM services include a curriculum of the fundamentals of the Christian faith, biblical counseling, a Christian 12 step program and more. In aftercare clients are encouraged and counseled to continue applying the five components of recovery and the core value as of their program into their non-residential lives.
At PLM, the goal is that each individual not only graduates from the program, but discovers the purpose that God has for their life and brings that value to their community as a productive Christian citizen.
