Life Connection Center Board of Directors
Maria Jones, President, Founder
MILL Church, Lowell, MA
Pastor Maria Jones, a native of Brazil, is the founding leadership of the MILL Church which started the Life Connection Center. She had an experience seeing a woman outside on the street of her church under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This mom was being dragged by her child. The child was using every effort to wake the mom up and move her along. this scene broke Pastor Maria’s heart. She began to think about how she could help the community on Appleton street. She thought that the easiest thing she could do, which was within her means was provide a meal and open her doors. This began the mission of Life Connection Center, providing a place of hope, safety and encouragement.

Vicente Dalmaso, Treasurer
MILL Church Bishop, Lowell, MA
Vincente Dalmaso, is one of the Bishops of the MIL Church located in Lowell, Massachusetts. Vinny, as he is fondly called is one of the original founders of the Life Connection Center (LCC). An immigrant from Brazil, Vinny was unable to reconcile his perception of the US as rich and powerful country in Brazil to the hunger, homelessness and vulnerability he saw on Appleton St in Lowell. So him and his mother, Pastor of the church, set out to do something about it, and contribute to his new community. Vinny used his experience as a contractor remodeling and building new homes to remodel and upgrade the existing LCC building from an abandoned, drug infested building to its current state of the art condition. Vinny brings oversight to the MIL church for business and financial matters.
