Case Management
~ “Each member is paired with a coach (one of LIFT’s professionally trained volunteers) who works with their member to create an actionable goal plan centered around family goals. Family goals often include increasing savings and reducing debt, finding high-quality educational opportunities and securing jobs that can provide more economic stability.”
~ “Members and their coaches meet virtually and in-person at least once a month to make progress toward their goals. Along the way, LIFT provides families with funds to meet emergency needs and support long-term goals, connects parents to a broader community of their peers and volunteer mentors and provides access to curated local resources and partnerships.”
~ “All of LIFT’s services are completely free and available in both English and Spanish! The criteria for becoming a LIFT member is: Be a parent or caregiver of a child eight or under (expecting parents and parents without current custody of their children are included), Have stable housing for the next six months, Employed or in an education program, and be Available and interested in coaching.”
