LIFT would like to thank Mark Beane (Loyola University), Tony Brunswick, Max Flatow, Elliot Haney, Wes Kays, Chris Mabry, Aparna Paul Jain,Dean Souleles, Zak Taylor, and Albert Yee for their contribuons to this report.  2 Dear Friends,I am thrilled to present LIFT’s 2011 Impact Report as atestament to the outstanding organizational achievementsof the past ear. At a time when more families than everare falling into povert – and a time when most serviceorganizations are facing cutbacks – LIFT responded bepanding our operations in ever one of our five regions(including two new offices in Boston and DC) and blaing the groundwork for epansion into Los Angeles in2012. Due to the hard work of our amazing staff and thededicated efforts of 650 volunteer advocates, we reached30% more families this ear, serving 9,000 clients andtheir families. And despite the daunting economic climate,we are etremel proud to report a ear-over-ear increaseof 81% in homes secured and 67% in jobs secured. Wehave helped to spearhead a national campaign to restore theAmerican Dream called Opportunit Nation, and we haveplaced a renewed emphasis on living out our core valuesin ever dimension of our work, with a particular emphasison diversit and inclusion. It has been a remarkable earof growth, impact, and advocac, and we couldn’t havedone an of it without ou, our dedicated supporters. Weare doing more and we are doing better – and it’s moreimportant than ever that we continue to do so. Thank oufor being a part of the LIFT movement. With tit,Kit KIrsTen LodaL, ceo and co-Founder From THe ceo and cHaIrman mIcHaeL gILLIgan, cHaIrman, LIFT naTIonaL Board oF dIrecTors Dear Friends,I share Kirsten’s pride in presenting LIFT’s 2011 ImpactReport, which demonstrates LIFT’s greatest ear of impactto date. Opening new offices, serving more clients, engagingmore volunteer advocates—LIFT has continued to push itselfto grow and support more Americans than ever. But thisgrowth is not for growth’s sake. With more than 46 millionAmericans now living below the povert line—an increaseof nearl 3 million people in just one ear—our nation iseperiencing uncertaint for both its short-term and long-term future. Luckil, I join ou, LIFT’s supporters, as part ofan alread powerful movement that trul demonstrates whatservice can do to reverse the trend. Where our nation sees adesperate population, LIFT sees people working tirelessl tocreate a better life for themselves and their families. Whereour nation feels a loss of hope for the future, LIFT seesa solution in leveraging volunteers to help clients securejobs, homes, and other stepping stones to empower them tomove forward. I count mself as fortunate to bear witnessto LIFT’s values, work, and success, and I hope ou willcontinue to join me in helping LIFT broaden and strengthenits impact.
