LifeCare - Connecting students with spiritual, emotional, social, and physical care
Several years ago, Tree of Life leadership realized that as the emotional healthcare needs in our culture were growing, our students were bringing additional needs with them to school. It became clear that these needs were having an impact on students’ ability to function well during the school day. With this in mind, the LifeCare office was formed.
LifeCare provides spiritual, emotional, social, and physical care to the Tree of Life community as we walk together towards Jesus. Each situation is handled individually according to the needs of the students, families, and staff involved. This includes everything from helping students navigate friendship issues, to walking alongside families through life’s most difficult crises. There are many desired spiritual outcomes when supporting students as they struggle, as well as facilitating them to do their academic work to the best of their ability.
The LifeCare office at Northridge is a comfortable space where students can often be found talking through concerns, eating lunch in smaller groups, or just enjoying a quiet space during study hall.
Liz Gordon, LifeCare Director, works primarily at the Northridge campus. Jon Kuhn provides care at all three elementary campuses.
