At Uplift Solutions, we believe life-changing transformations are possible. We see them every day in the work we do. Our justice-involved participants not only graduate from our program with guaranteed employment, they graduate with dignity, pride, and a renewed sense of purpose. Many of our staff bring their own lived experience to their work, which is why our participants often say that our community feels like a caring family.
We understand the stigma, fear and insecurities our participants face. We meet each person right where they are at, with empathy and respect. Since 2017, hundreds of graduates have rediscovered their strengths – and their potential – through our holistic support. They are no longer defined by labels. From job training to the life skills that address negative thought patterns and poor decision making, our participants are equipped with the tools for long-term success. Our graduates are our best ambassadors. Many are reaching back to help others through our active alumni community and our ongoing advocacy efforts. As we grow, we are sharing and spreading the Uplift Solutions model around the country to reduce recidivism and to transform lives.
