What Does LIFT Do?

LIFT: Living Independently For Tomorrow 

The purpose of LIFT is to provide apartment-based Independent Living and Support Services to help foster care youth, ages 17-21, transition from residential care to independent living. 

Youth receive housing, vocational and educational services, life skills training, therapeutic services (counseling, therapy and/or substance abuse education), and the development of a network of support services in the community. LIFT is licensed for 25-beds for males & females transitioning from the foster care system to independent living in the community.

I would not be able to hold down a job for almost three years now if it wasn't for LIFT. I am 22 years old & I work full-time at Georgetown Hospital. I've received three pay raises since I've been here & I have another one coming up. I have my own desk & I feel proud about my accomplishments. I would absolutely recommend the program to others.
