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 full-time working mom has had some trouble getting some needed items for her home. She is a mom to a 5 year old and a newborn baby. She was just able to move into connect housing from a shelter and has had to purchase all of the furnishings herself. Although she works full-time, her money has went towards the care and wellness of her children and herself and has had trouble obtaining these other items. She is in need of a kitchen table and chairs for her family as well as a rocking chair for her newborn, which has been asked of her by CYS. She often has to share seating with her 5 year old and a rocking chair would help them both have adequate seating and the kitchen set would allow them to eats meals as a family. The mom is involved with Blueprints' In-Home Services.$80.00 donated of $243.00 goalDonate
