Since 2004, Lifeline Recovery Center has helped thousands of people kick their drug addicting habits by providing 'Christ-centered solutions', according to executive director Ashley Miller.

The group had operated out of an old homeless shelter that sits on a hill in Paducah, Kentucky that didn't provide the space necessary to grow.Over the summer the group purchased a 46-acre property, named 'The Ranch', and now use it as a facility to help men addicted to drugs.

Beshear presented the group with a $100,000 grant, funded by the Team Kentucky Non-Profit Assistance Fund. Legislation set aside $75 million dollars for non-profit groups that continued offering services during the pandemic.
