Mission Statement

LIFT’s mission is to help community members 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.

Description

LIFT is working to help lift people out of poverty for good.

We are a growing, national movement to combat poverty and expand opportunity for all people in the United States. Our mission is to alleviate poverty in LA and our country by engaging volunteer Advocates in this effort. LIFT recruits and trains a diverse corps of advocates comprised of undergraduate and graduate students, professionals, veterans, retirees, etc. Our advocates make a rigorous and sustained commitment to service.

This corps operates a national network of service centers, where they work side by side with a community member to find jobs, secure safe and stable housing, make ends meet through public benefits and tax credits, and connect them to critical supports like healthcare and childcare. More than 70,000 members and their families have been served in LIFT’s 15-year history. LIFT has offices in Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.
