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 mom involved in Blueprints Early Learning Program, is in need of pull-ups for her son. Mom lost work due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and after returning to work, she was injured and had orders from her doctor not to work until completely healed. Mom is consistently visiting her doctor in hopes she will heal soon and can return to work. Mom and her son obtained housing this year after fleeing a domestic violence situation. Mom is playing catch-up with bills and household items due to her lapse in work.
