Uplift People of Elk Grove

At Uplift People of Elk Grove we help individuals and families break the cycle of poverty and move to a place of more abundant lives. We use a holistic approach that focuses on avoiding homelessness, moving off public assistance, planning for the future, goal setting and moving from a place of surviving to thriving.

Weekly meetings are the core of Uplift. Our weekly meetings include dinner, fellowship, educational curriculum, goal setting, presentations and workshops. We provide childcare and junior/high school programs. We recognize that transition from surviving to thriving takes time. Participants are asked to dedicate 24-36 months to complete the program.
