In the Spring of 2018 the idea of opening a youth center in Ringgold was born out of the hearts of a handful of passionate parents. LIFT Youth Center Inc spent the last three years diligently connecting with existing community service providers and organizations, establishing our foundation, building leadership and chasing every financial lead. After receiving three BIG grants in the Spring of 2021, we were able to BUY our building and are about to complete the remodel of the space. The building itself is to be named the Claudia Nance Rollins Youth Center in honor of those grantors. And LIFT Youth Center Inc is the nonprofit entity doing the work. We have had a beautiful ground swell of support from the community and from students and families who are so excited to start attending! It has been a truly phenomenal journey so far! LIFT is thrilled to now be able to say that we will be holding a Ribbon Cutting with the Catoosa County Chamber of Commerce on April 30, 2021. We are excited to start working with Student Leadership in May and will start holding open student events this summer. At the end of the summer LIFT Youth Center Inc will hold our GRAND OPENING on Saturday, August 7!!!

“LIFT is working toward fulfilling a need I see in our community every day.  When a group of people come together to make a difference for the at-risk youth in our community, we should all ask what we can do to support that goal.  The best thing we can do right now is hop on board with this movement and show our youth that there is hope when they have so many reasons to believe there is none.  LIFT is stepping into that space and providing opportunities for our next generation to experience love, guidance and an opportunity to see that we do care.  This is an opportunity to make all the difference.”
