We empower families to break the cycle of poverty.
LIFT is a national nonprofit dedicated to ending intergenerational poverty. Since 1998, we have helped 100,000 low-income individuals achieve their goals. Today we connect hardworking parents and caregivers of young children to the people, tools and resources they need. LIFT operates in communities with some of the highest rates of concentrated poverty.
By fostering relationships between low-income parents and caregivers of young children (members) and dedicated volunteers (advocates), we help families build the personal well-being, social connections and financial strength to secure basic needs and achieve long-term goals and aspirations, like a safe home, living wages or a better education.
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.
