come together to LIFT those in need

We have all been in a rough spot before, and we likely got through it with someone’s help – a family member, friend, or neighbor. But what if family, friends, or neighbors cannot help?

A Little LIFT, a Blueprints‘ project, provides the opportunity for kind-hearted people to “lift” Blueprints participants and help them overcome barriers.

Donations of all sizes collectively help prevent small, immediate barriers from becoming catastrophes for those in our community who are learning and striving to attain self-reliance.

Be the LIFT to help break barriers for someone who just needs a little help to continue on the path to stability.

a little LIFT success story

“As a young single mom, I try to make the best life I can for my one-year-old son. After I signed my son up for the Early Head Start Program at Blueprints, I was able to work again and get back on my feet!

“Then this past summer, my car broke down. I couldn’t afford to get it fixed when I need to stay current on the rest of my bills. I began walking my son to preschool and then two miles to work every day, unsure of what to do next. My caseworker at Blueprints recognized my situation and offered help through A Little LIFT. I was able to get my car fixed and secure a new and even better job than I could have imagined!”
