LIFT is a growing movement to combat poverty and expand opportunity for all people in the United States. LIFT currently runs centers staffed by trained volunteers in Boston, Chicago, 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 low-income community members. LIFT's clients and volunteers 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 volunteers to grapple with our country's most challenging issues related to poverty, race, inequality, and public policy.
Since LIFT's founding, over 6,500 volunteers have served more than 50,000 individuals and families. By 2015, our goal is that 10,000 LIFT volunteers will have advanced 100,000 clients on their path toward economic security and personal success. As a first step in its long-term expansion plan, LIFT is poised to deepen its involvement in communities across the nation. LIFT is focusing its operations and growth aspirations in six major regions: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
