Lifting Up the Lives of Others

On Friday, April 13, 2012 a group of volunteers from LIFT Philadelphia volunteered their afternoon to help ACHIEVEability ready a home for a new ACHIEVEability family by painting and cleaning.

LIFT’s mission is to combat poverty and expand opportunity for all people in the United States. LIFT envisions a day when all people in our country will have the opportunity to achieve economic security and pursue their aspirations. 

LIFT 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. Simultaneously, the LIFT experience pushes volunteers to grapple with our country's most challenging issues related to poverty, race, inequality, and policy. Since LIFT's founding, over 6,000 volunteers have served more than 40,000 individuals and families.
