Reducing Poverty One Neighborhood at a Time.

Matching Grant Opportunity for Friends of Elevate

Hope House for Single Moms & Their Kids


Here at Elevate we were blessed by a local ministry that wants to help single moms find a more stable environment to raise their kids. These generous friends of Elevate have offered a $20,000 dollar matching gift opportunity to friends and partners of Elevate Lives.

Elevate passionately equips churches to collaborate with local schools, so both can help children in low-income neighborhoods to thrive in every aspect of their lives. We elevate lives one child, one family, one neighborhood at a time.


Elevate Lives is a leader in the intentional development of a process that connects low-income schools with resourced congregations. This supplemental support brings in local volunteers focused on educational enrichment, increasing self-esteem, and ensuring youth are prepared for the next phase of their education by connecting individuals otherwise separated by socio-economic class.

The Elevate story is an open book and we’d like you to help write a chapter.

We help low income children, not in far away lands, but right here in our own city.


We find helping hearts and hands at nearby churches—people who will volunteer time in nearby elementary schools where these children really need a little extra help to successfully move ahead with the education they deserve.

But that’s just the beginning. Elevate’s goal is to make sure local kids get the help they need long term, no matter where they live or what life throws at them. This means that along the way our “neighbors helping neighbors” philosophy grows beyond the school campus to the child’s family and their homelife.  The neighborhood churches and their members are perfectly situated to be Helping Hearts and Hands to that child and his family.


And isn’t that what the church is supposed to be for all of us?

Elevate Lives helps congregations and nonprofits overflow beyond the local school into their neighborhood to further help children and their families thrive.   Elevate helps bring people together through volunteerism and relational engagement from service projects, to community events, and more personalized interactions—each tailored to the needs of each family in their neighborhood. Elevate Lives has recruited and trained congregations for meaningful engagement in these neighborhoods with hundreds of relational-based events to help build community.  This is where the real transformation takes place.


We can't do this without your help. Please consider giving to Elevate Lives to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most in our city.
