LIFT is an advocacy organization that aims to eliminate poverty.

LIFT’s mission is to help community members achieve economic stability and well-being. They are working to establish a new standard for holistic and enduring solutions in the country’s fight against poverty.

They focuses on eliminating poverty among all populations, which includes providing support services for expectant mothers. Among its long list of services, which range from job-hunting support to providing healthcare referrals, LIFT helps new parents find childcare support subsidies, file their taxes to include the Child Tax Credit and identify mom-friendly jobs that offer flexible hours.

LIFT recently announced a partnership with Capital One to invest $1 million toward a multi-year effort to expand economic opportunities for impoverished communities.

We’ve all had times when life has felt unstable. To survive these hurdles many of us are able to lean on our personal support networks. But if you don’t have one, or if it’s compromised, it’s easy to fall into crisis. Millions of people in America are one crisis away from poverty.
