Mission Statement

Our Mission and Vision

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

Our Organization

LIFT currently runs centers staffed by trained volunteer advocates in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, to serve low-income individuals and families. LIFT recruits and trains a diverse corps of advocates to work side-by-side with community members. LIFT members and advocates work one-on-one to find jobs, secure safe and stable housing, make ends meet through public benefits and tax credits, and obtain quality referrals for services like childcare and healthcare. As a result, the LIFT experience pushes advocates to grapple with our country’s most challenging issues related to poverty, race, inequality, and policy. Since LIFT’s founding in 1998, over 10,000 volunteer advocates have served more than 60,000 individuals and families.
