RISE Builder Welcome Home Bags!

Nebraska Reentry Program
June 24, 2019

As a reentry program in Nebraska we want to give our RISE Builders the best "Welcome Home" that we can give them. As we have more and more reentering the community on a weekly basis, assuring their basic needs are met is one of the most critical things we can do!

We are so excited to share that we now have a RISE Giving Page on Amazon! If you're looking for practical ways to give, this is it. All of the items on this list will go right into a new, swaggy RISE backpack and onto the backs of our Builders!

Check out our Amazon list here!


We stand in solidarity with the Black community and mourn the countless loved ones lost to senseless violence. For many, we will never fully understand, but we stand with you, see you, support you, and will amplify the voices of the unheard.

Roughly three months into the program curriculum, our Builders have been prepared for a Coaching Day. This event hosts volunteers from the community inside prison where Builders have resumes, personal statements, and business ideations reviewed and assessed. Find out more about what this powerful event entails on the blog today!

Nebraska Re-entry programs like RISE help access resources in mental health including post-release anxiety. As a supporting community, we have to remember that not all scars are on the outside.
