We empower families to break the cycle of poverty.
LIFT is a national nonprofit working with – not just for – low-income families to design, implement and evaluate solutions to end intergenerational poverty. We work on the ground in communities with some of the highest rates of concentrated poverty – Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C.
LIFT knows if parents believe in themselves, have strong networks and can access resources, then economic opportunity for their children is possible.
Since 1998, we’ve helped our members navigate their way through tough times as they work to strengthen ecomonic foundations for themselves and their families. But our success is also proof of a tremendous need.
