|About||UPLIFT : Understanding Poverty: Lifting Individuals and Families Together, reflecting the positive impact we are making across Chatham County, NC|
|Mission||To equip people who are struggling financially with access to the opportunities, education, and relationships they need to become self-sustaining.|
Formerly Circles Chatham, it's the same great people…new name...new energy…with a renewed commitment to raising awareness of poverty, and working together as a community, within the community, to uplift Chatham County such that all have an opportunity to thrive.
For individuals and families who are ready to make a change in their lives, we offer a Leadership Development course and volunteer support to help you achieve your goal of a better life.
For the community, we have periodic workshops such as a powerful poverty simulation experience to raise awareness of the issues surrounding those with low incomes.
For businesses, schools, and organizations, we provide professional staff development to enhance sensitivity and awareness of working with families with low incomes.
UPLIFT is a grassroots, primarily volunteer initiative focused on empowering low income families to move themselves to financial self-sufficiency and engaging the community in breaking down systemic barriers that block this movement; especially for those in Generational Poverty.
UPLIFT relies on community engagement, drawing on educational, workplace, financial, social service, and other community resources. These collaborations across race, class, and economic lines strengthen the community and break down barriers that prevent people from becoming financially self-sufficient.
There's a place for everyone at UPLIFT. Come make a difference in the life of a neighbor.
