Ladies In Need Can Survive, Inc. is a non-profit organization. Many women come to LINCS with just the clothes on their backs. Some of them come under the influence of drugs and alcohol, jobless and have no health insurance. Because they do not have income and insurance, many of them are turned away at other shelters. At LINCS, we help them whether they can pay or not. However, operating a residential establishment can be costly. That’s why we rely on individuals, grants, fundraisers, foundations,  churches, businesses, and private donors.
You can give a one-time or recurring donation through our safe and secure PayPal system.
Please make checks payable to Ladies In Need Can Survive, Inc., or LINCS, and mail payment to 2155 Hillside Ave, Memphis, TN 38127.
Gifts or any in-kind donations are always needed: gently worn clothes, scarfs, shoes and accessories, brand new socks, panties, bras (all different sizes), etc. Items may be dropped off at LINCS. Please call (901) 353-0927 before coming. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
We need more volunteers. Volunteers are the heartbeat of what we do! We could not do this work without you! Please, call our office at(901) 353-0927 to sign up to be a mentor, group facilitator, sponsor, event coordinator, or to host a fundraiser, etc.
