The Lift has a new home! As of the beginning of the month, we now operate out of Woodland Hills Church, and in the video above you can see the grand arrival of our new rug! The space may look kind of empty, but we're starting to get quite comfortable.
We’re excited to be here for a couple reasons. First, the Woodland Hills building is home to a lot of organizations, including a food shelf, daycare for low-income families, and coordinated access to housing. This gives us a lot of opportunities for our staff, interns, and young leaders to partner with other like-minded nonprofits. Plus we love the energy generated by being surrounded by so much activity!
Additionally, Woodland Hills is right across the parking lot from The Plaza Theater, where we run our job skills program in partnership with the church. We’re downright relieved not to have to drive back and forth across the city multiple times a day. Instead, it’s just a quick jaunt over the pavement.
So there you have it. Our new base of operations. We'll be sure to post photos when we're more settled. (Most of our office is still moving boxes!)
