LIFTT offers consumer IL services in several areas, each designed to foster individual empowerment.
Applying and Obtaining Government Benefits
LIFTT provides information and referral for persons with disabilities seeking help with applying for and obtaining such government benefits as Food Stamps, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. When appropriate LIFTT also provides consumers with referrals to legal representatives that can help ensure equal treatment.
LIFTT is committed to helping consumers live as successful and safely as possible in their own homes. LIFTT can help consumers with applying for grants to build ramps, roll in showers, or other accessibility modifications/needs
LIFTT can help consumers with the resources needed to become successfully employed in the community regardless of disability.
LIFTT is determined to help its consumers with advocating for their needs and rights as Individuals with disabilities. We help by working with businesses, community organizations, the government and other community functions to ensure that the needs and rights of the disabled community are not being overlooked.
LIFTT provides services to persons with disabilities to help them gain the skills they need to thrive on their own. Skills are taught either on an individual basis or in a group setting. Training is to help individuals with disabilities to become self-advocates so they can advocate for their own needs in the community and workplace.
Beyond providing resources for individual empowerment, LIFTT also works to promote acceptance and inclusion of persons with disabilities through social action and systems change.
LIFTT works with schools, businesses, and community organizations to increase awareness of the issues facing persons with disabilities and to help them better serve the disability community.
LIFTT works in a non-partisan manner with government at all levels to educate officials on the realities of life for persons with disabilities. LIFTT helps to design and advocate for legislation and policies that produce a framework within which persons with disabilities can achieve self-determination. LIFTT also works to assure that once such legislation and policies are in place, they are properly enforced and administered.
