Founded in 2015 in Montgomery County, MD, LIFT Corp. is a non-profit intended to connect young adults with disabilities to surrounding communities by establishing relationships through volunteer work, encouraging and promoting an active lifestyle, thus offering them the opportunity to enrich and experience all of life.

Co-founders Morgan Hatten and Erin Brown, both currently residing in Denver, Colorado, are Montgomery County natives and have a long-found passion for supporting individuals with special needs. Prior to relocating to Colorado, they decided to give back to their network, thus founding LIFT…


Morgan Hatten graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) in 2008. Currently, Morgan works in finance for Fidelity Investments. She enjoys hiking and hanging out with her friends on the weekends.


Erin Brown is also a graduate of UMBC from the class of 2012 and later received her Master’s in Special Education from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. Erin currently works for Robert Half as a Division Director of OfficeTeam. In her free time, Erin enjoys hanging out with friends while hiking, skiing, and snowboarding.

Our vision for LIFT is to create opportunities for our friends with disabilities to experience life to the fullest. Throughout the year, Morgan and Erin will be traveling back to Maryland to see these events come to life. We will keep our website up-to-date with upcoming events, so stay tuned!!!
