About UpLIFTD

UpLIFTD, a 501 © 3 non-profit agency, was incorporated as Louisiana Industries for the Disabled, Inc. in 1984.  UpLIFTD was made possible through a state/federal grant by Louisiana Rehabilitation Services, (LRS).  UpLIFTD primarily serves persons with disabilities and other persons with serious barriers to employment.  In 1995, UpLIFTD relocated to its present headquarters at 1979 Beaumont Drive in a 13,500 square foot fully accessible complex.
