Why Support LIFT?

"I donate because LIFT made it possible for me
reunite with my children."


Despite having joint legal custody, John* was denied visits with his sons. He knew he needed to go to Family Court but was so overwhelmed he didn’t know where to begin.

So John came to LIFT and learned about his rights, the court process, and how to be his own lawyer. After several meetings, he successfully represented himself in court and secured regular visits with his children.

At his last appointment with LIFT, John reached into his pocket and made a donation. “I know every little bit helps,” he said. “I can’t imagine what I would have done without LIFT.  If no one donates what would happen to other parents like me?

* Name changed.
