RISE's mission is to break the generational cycles of incarceration.

"The last 8 years have been very difficult for me. I’ve had people in my life who've tried hard to understand what my son & I are going through but it wasn't until I met the amazing people at RISE that I truly felt I had found my "people." RISE goes above and beyond caring for people and the group of people who are in the RISE family group has put me at ease, answered questions, and is an amazing support group."

    It is an honor to be a part of RISE. Thank you for this opportunity, this positive approach to building and being a part of the community. As my steps forward become less timid but remain tender, my hope is to help guide others forward as well. Again, thank you for everything.

Our Impact

To experience reentry is to experience crisis. Incarcerated individuals are often released to area communities with little to no financial support, emotional support, mental health support, or support for substance use addictions. RISE believes that reentry support is crucial to the success of its released graduates. Support must be tailored to individual needs, support must be swift, and support must be available around the clock. Most importantly, reentry support must begin prior to release.
