About Us

LIFT's mission is to help families in our community achieve economic stability and well-being. We are working to establish a new standard for holistic and enduring solutions in our country's fight against poverty. 

We pair rigorously trained Advocates with committed community members to build the strong personal, social and financial foundations they need to get ahead. By setting their own goals and working hard to achieve them, LIFT Members (i.e. clients) are equipped to get a job, a safe home and quality education for themselves and their children. They also build a support network, confidence in what they bring to the table and the skills to manage tough times in the future. 

LIFT routinely seeks driven and independent leaders to serve as Advocates. Advocates will have the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of community members while learning about local domestic poverty issues. LIFT Members and Advocates work one-on-one to find jobs, secure housing, enroll in public benefits, and obtain referrals for services like childcare and healthcare. We look for individuals who are passionate about community development and are committed to LIFT's anti-poverty mission. LIFT is an equal opportunity employer and does not make hiring decisions on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or religion.
