      The LIFT™ Program

      Our LIFT™ Program is forging economic independence through workforce and business opportunities for people overcoming barriers to fair wage employment

      Our Program provides critical career development skills for people to transform their lives. Together, we SPARKCHANGE™ & LIFTLives™.

      At the LIFT™ Program, we believe that transformation is always possible. Our Program's workforce is comprised of people in and around Chicago who are overcoming barriers to fair wage employment, who are onboarded to the LIFT Workshop. There, they gain critical career development skills – through job creation, mentorship, leadership training, and holistic support – translatable to any workplace. The goal: breaking the cycle of poverty for them and their families through a career at HHPLIFT or beyond.

      Our workforces have included those in the justice system and identified most at risk for gun violence; those coming out of addiction and experienced housing instability, homelessness, and food insecurity; at-risk young mothers; young adults with intellectual differences; and those who are physically challenged. 

      We believe jobs alone are not enough to shrink the opportunity gap for people with significant barriers to fair wage employment. It takes a comprehensive and holistic approach to build a pathway to equity and economic independence.
