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.

A single male involved in Blueprints Re-Entry Program is in need of some help to land back on his feet. He participated in and graduated from Blueprints Getting Ahead While Getting Out Program and is looking to make some changes in his life. He is currently staying with a friend until he is able to save up enough to go towards housing and purchasing a vehicle. He is in need of clothing for the colder months so his limited income can go towards food and other needed items. This support would allow him to focus on his savings and overcome this financial burden.$10.00 donated of $150.00 goalDonate
