About:  LifeSource International is a non-profit organization in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  Our mission is to give a hand up, not just a hand out.  LifeSource uses a holistic approach to help individuals and families in need.  Our goal is to make a difference both now and for generations to come.  We help families in stress by customizing our services to meet their unique needs along with assisting them through programs and services.
