With a one-on-one, holistic approach, LIFT aims to lift people out of poverty for good. Their network of advocates—trained college student volunteers around the country—works with members to help them achieve stability. These advocates establish personal, social, and financial support. They guide members through challenges like writing a resume for the first time, securing affordable housing, or accessing public benefits to help make ends meet.
The stories of people who have been helped by LIFT, told in their own words, are touching and uplifting. They are stories of hope.
Donations to LIFT support their programs and centers, helping them empower more individuals to leave problems like poverty behind.
