What is Uplifme?

Uplifme is a website that serves as a national resource hub that posts social service events.  The site provides real time information on available resources, in a consumable format, for both people who need resources and social service professionals seeking resources for the people they serve and/or professional development opportunities.  Uplifme works at the intersection of poverty and health and increases health equity and literacy by making information and resources available that addresses the social determinants of physical and behavioral health .  The site is a bridge that connects people to information and services provided by the public and non-profit sectors.

In 2024, Uplifme started the series “Community Connections – Uplifting the work of the Public and Non-Profit Sector”, with the goal of highlighting the multifaceted work of the organizations that serve their communities every day.  The goals of the series are to ensure the public is aware of the many resources available to them, as well as to support opportunities for public and non-profit organizations to forge new partnerships and collaborations to uplift our communities together.
