Our Purpose

Our hope is that the work we do will contribute to a vibrant and inclusive community. Here are our vision, mission, and values that guide the work we do.

Our vision

Our vision is a welcoming, inclusive, and diversity-affirming community that is free of poverty and full of heart.

Our Mission

Lift Community Services works with community partners and people facing barriers to create equity and hope in the qathet Region by establishing sustainable housing and employment and providing a range of inclusive, supportive services.


We value and welcome people with different identities, and we see opportunities to engage the wisdom and experiences of all people.


We value personal growth and provide a rich and nurturing environment for our staff and clients to reach their potential. We strive every day to increase our impacts on our clients and our community.


We put the community first in all of our decisions and we take open and transparent collaborative approaches to create capacity and solve community challenges.

We live and work on the homelands and territories of the Tla’amin People. We honour the land, the Tla’amin People, and their treaty and continually seek to strengthen our relationship and responsibilities to them as guests in the territory.
