About Lift To Rise
Lift To Rise is an evolution of the long-held belief that we can do better by the people who call the Coachella Valley home—the very people who grow our food and who make this desert such an amazing destination for more than a million people who travel here each year.
Our work dates back to 2014, when a group of community-based organizations serving eastern Riverside County’s Coachella Valley — including FIND Food Bank, United Way of the Desert, the Regional Access Project Foundation, and the Desert Healthcare District — came together to discuss using a collective impact approach to turn the tide of mounting disadvantages affecting too many local residents.
Lift To Rise works to achieve a future where all Coachella Valley families are healthy, stable and thriving. To this end, Lift To Rise catalyzes both institutional and grassroots leaders to effectively collaborate and shift their attention and activities toward mutually reinforced interventions that address the underlying causes of poverty in the region.
Through collaboration with community partners and extensive data analysis, we’ve identified the following two areas of focus: housing stability and economic opportunity. Our goals are ambitious — reducing the number of rent burdened Coachella Valley households by 30% over the next ten years by increasing the supply of affordable housing, changing local policies, and increasing regional investment.
Our name, Lift To Rise, honors this vision of hope and aspiration. We work to lift, so that everyone can rise.
