Mission Statement

RISE Focus: That all people find freedom from cycles of incarceration. RISE Values: Tough Love Withness Entrepreneurial Mindset Grit Rebuilding

Description

At RISE, transformation starts pre-release and continues post-release. Our inside/out model bridges incarceration to the community and considers all the critical steps in that journey. We prepare and train people for each phase through intensive character development, employment readiness, job creation through entrepreneurship and case management. We transform people in the community by building awareness and empathy that leads to support and opportunity. These connections heal families, create employment pathways and lower recidivism.
