YOUR IMPACT 2021
Dear Lift Family,
As one faces trauma, it is vital for them to find a place of security and rest. In 2021, we dedicated ourselves to helping families find a place to call home. A place where they can feel complete, accepted, and loved. Not a place of brick and mortar, but a place where they are surrounded by people who understand because the have their own personal story of disability.
Emerging from the sorrows of the pandemic, we begin to see new energy and excitement for regaining our programming footing. One year after the beginning of the virus, we were staring at the decision of what to do with Breakaway 2021, the foundational piece of our year. There was no hesitation, Breakaway 2021 would go face-to-face. From there, our programs began to roar, and we saw a 30% increase in programming over the year 2020.
As you will see in the annual report below, the annual revenues for 2021, also, received a great 12% bounce over 2020. As outreach increased, you responded. It was another record-breaking year in our financial position, but also, our volunteer hours were equally impressive. Not only did you contribute, but you gave your time with almost 13,000 volunteer hours. What a great family!
There is so much more. I encourage you to take time to review our annual report below. See how God is building a HOME through his creative design. You have laid your hands to the Building of the work and our families have opportunity to Live in a place that is inspiring dreams for a new future.
Thank you for making the Lift Family great. Please let us know how we can serve you, work alongside of you, or join arms with you with the vision God has developed in you.
With Much Gratitude,
Founder & Executive Director
When I think of Lift Disability I think of a light house. It’s light bright, showing us the way to live fully in Christ as we navigate the waters of being a special needs family.

Lift accepted my young son and I as volunteers years ago where many organizations have age requirements. To be able to witness him see the person vs the disability has been life changing and we plan for Breakaway camp every summer! Lift is life changing for its volunteers and families impacted by disabilities.
