United People Lifting Individuals and Families Together (UPLIFT)
Who we serve: Families affected by violence, abuse or neglect
Where: Little Haiti, West Little River, North Miami and North Miami Beach
Goal: Empower, encourage and strengthen families
Raising children can be tough. Lack of material and social support can leave parents overstressed and without options for caring for their kids. These situations can create anxiety, limit resources and put the family in crisis.
UPLIFT believes families deserve to get the help they need without judgment.
United People Lifting Individuals and Families Together (UPLIFT) provides support to families in crisis by connecting them with community resources. UPLIFT is under our Community Upliftment and Partnerships Pillar of Service.
Linking families to services is how we provide long-lasting support for healthy behaviors. Those services could include helping with transportation, counseling or temporary shelter. Each family’s needs are unique, and we try and find the best fit for every situation.
UPLIFT partners with over 40 different schools, the Department of Children and Families and other community organizations to support youth and families. Funded by The Children’s Trust.
