HOW WE WORK
Everything we do is by volunteers and by donations only. We do not take state or federal aid. This allows those unable to qualify for any help to get the help they need.
We also do a sliding scale so that those that are in a position to pay a small amount for a visit, actually help "pay it forward" to those that are unable to. Those unable to get help, nothing changes at all. We are there for them!
We really need your help to continue helping to "LIFT UP" others! It takes a lot of money to pay the overhead: rent, utilities, phone, medicines, supplies, and so much more. We are so THANKFUL for any help you can provide us. Donations can be dropped off in person on any Friday, mailed to Lift Up Springfied at 3259 E. Sunshine St., Suite AA, Springfield, MO 65804, or visit our "Donation" page here on the website.
