Life Connection Center

Life Connection Center is a community soup kitchen and homeless outreach center located in the impoverished neighborhood of Appleton Street in Lowell, Massachusetts. 


Life Connection Center addresses emerging and core needs within the adult homeless community. Through small acts of kindness, a smile and a hot meal, Life Connection Center has established a place of compassion and hope. We create customized programs and services based on peer feedback in partnership with our homeless friends. We believe that our friends on the street are  the experts in the needs of the homeless community and that food brings people together and together is where restoration and recovery can happen. Come for a meal, stay for services you need.
