raised towards $10,000 goal



We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

Our mission is more critical than ever.

Help us to transform lives and SPARKCHANGE.

HHPLIFT is forging economic independence through workforce and employment opportunities, here in Chicago and around the world.
Right now, we need to support one of our LIFT associates in need. Neil (we've changed their name for privacy,) is a critical member of our LIFT workshop & family. He needs the support of the entire LIFT community. He joined us from ReEmployability, and quickly became a leader, taking on more and more responsibilities & always striving to learn new skills.

Recently, a family member became very sick and the medical bills and hospice care, compiled with no mode of transportation has made life incredibly difficult. He still comes to work and never complains, but we know that he needs us.

Our goal: to raise $2500 and show our beloved colleague how much he matters to us, and his community. Please consider a donation of any amount, and know that any amount raised will go immediately to help Neil and his family.

We appreciate all that you've done so far - whether supporting our virtual fundraiser, supporting the end of year campaign, or taking the challenge of the Race to SPARKCHANGE. Please consider a donation to our emergency fund. Just select "2021 Emergency Fund" as your designation when completing your transaction online.

This year, we are also raising critical friends for our career development program in the LIFT workshop.

Funds will specifically support:
  • Expansion the LIFT workshop - the additional square footage allows us to hire more associates
  • Associate salary for 6 months
  • Soap making masterclass for our program associates
  • Adding new products to our LIFT spa & self-care line, so we can grow our local workforce

Please support us with a donation and be part of our movement to create career paths for people with barriers to employment, sparking change and transforming lives for the communities most in need.
