For over 34 years, the LIFT Center has provided services and support to thousands of active seniors in Kendall and nearby areas of Miami-Dade County. The LIFT Center is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers and dedicated to providing seniors with a full calendar of enriching activities and a gathering spot to meet and make friends. Many members describe the Center as a place of joy that gives them purpose - in short, the Center provides a "lifeline". The Pandemic has given the Center the time to reflect on our past and look ahead to the future to create a more dynamic and diverse organization.
Our immediate goal is to grow our membership to its pre-pandemic number and beyond. As of this year, we have had many returning members as well as new members. We believe we have a unique opportunity to rebuild and grow our organization by addressing the issues of health, well-being, and social isolation highlighted by COVID-19. Our ultimate goal is to build a financially secure, sustainable organization that serves our community with new programs and ideas.
