Why We Do It
In the past several years, through innovation, collaboration, tremendous foresight, and extraordinary hard work, programs and courts have been created in the 19th Judicial Circuit that have produced phenomenal results. These results include:
-Increased public safety
-Criminal justice system enhancement
-Saved lives that would otherwise be “lost”
We are now at a crossroads of our endeavors. The potential for even far greater results and achievements are truly limitless, but without fiscal autonomy, these plans and dreams cannot become a reality. LifeBuilders of the Treasure Coast, Inc. has evolved from tremendous success, unique collaborations and unprecedented results. The achievements realized will not only be seen in the present, but for generations to come.
What is LifeBuilders?
LifeBuilders of the Treasure Coast, Inc. is a non-profit organization created by a group of committed citizens to help those progressing through the criminal justice system or dependency court be successful.

The impact of this hands-on caring and help is seen in a decrease in crime, less overcrowding in our jails and a decrease in jail and court costs.
LifeBuilders of the Treasure Coast is all about giving a hand up, not a hand out, and making a positive impact on the life of an individual, and indeed, the entire community.
