THE CHALLENGES ARE REAL…

46000000
People are living in poverty in the United States.


600000
People are homeless on any given night.



51
Percent of the U.S. population will experience poverty at some time before age 65.



66
Percent of people will move into poverty again within five years of moving out of it.


& PEOPLE ARE CONSTANTLY TOLD THAT THEY CAN’T. THAT THEY WON’T.

AT LIFT, WE TELL THEM THAT THEY CAN…THAT THEY WILL!

The reality is that we all need the same things in times of crisis. So, WE HELP PEOPLE BUILD THE STRONG FOUNDATIONS THEY NEED TO GET AHEAD.

AND WHAT WE ARE DOING IS WORKING FOR FAMILIES


100000
People have already committed to doing the hard work it takes to move out of poverty for good.



1300
LIFT is putting about $1,300 back into the pockets of struggling families through income supports.



77000
Volunteer hours were served last year by our Advocates who worked 1:1 with our Members.

Before LIFT, getting a job was like looking for a needle in a haystack—at night. LIFT Was my flashlight.

Many Americans struggling in poverty today need more than financial assistance; they need help figuring out how to plug into a changing economy. They need help devising a plan forward. One of the most innovative organizations working to re-imagine poverty alleviation along these lines is called LIFT. -New York Times
