A Little LIFT
“Where crowd funding meets barrier elimination”
Many of our neighbors struggle to find stability; to attain self-sufficiency; and to ultimately achieve prosperity.
ALL [A Little LIFT] is a community led, member directed initiative that has an immediate impact on Blueprints [formerly Community Action Southwest] participating individuals and families who are living this struggle.
Blueprints works with more than 19,000 people each year, implementing 35+ services from more 34 locations throughout southwestern PA and West Virginia.
Barriers to self-reliance frequently cannot be resolved with traditional, grant funded programming, and our clientele needlessly lose progress towards self-reliance, perpetuating the need for additional services and dependence on those services.
The ALL initiative is an opportunity for community members or groups to easily prevent small problems from becoming catastrophes for local families and making our community stronger as a result.
All funds received through this initiative are used by Blueprints team members to resolve client barriers.
FUNDS ARE NEVER PAID DIRECTLY TO BLUEPRINTS’ CLIENTS.

Blueprints has partnered with Hearts With Hammers, a faith-based volunteer organization dedicated to repairing homes and rebuilding lives in the south hills. Several Blueprints families struggling with home ownership have benefited tremendously already. There are seven families at present still in need of home repair and on the list to be helped. Funds generated through this LIFT will purchase materials to Repair Homes and Rebuild Lives for three of the families on the list.$100.00 donated of $800.00 goalDonate
