About UPLIFT

UPLIFT takes their name from the Lessons from the Geese story: "As each goose flaps its wings, it creates an 'UPLIFT' for the bird following. By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds 71% more flying range than if each bird flew alone."  It is UPLIFT’s desire to provide that for parents and families coming behind us.  The UPLIFT name in all caps is not an acronym, but signifies the lift they hope to provide.

UPLIFT UNDERSTANDS

The entire family feels the impact of a child or youth with a disability or special need. Their care may be physically, emotionally, or financially draining to the family. Parents and caregivers are often reluctant to talk openly about their child’s struggles with relatives, teachers, professionals, or friends. They may not know where to go for help. The majority of the staff and board members of UPLIFT are individuals and family members of children, youth, and young adults with disabilities and special needs.
