We are happy to announce that Rise’s center-based programs in Minnesota have started opening in a phased approach this week. In-person, center-based service options are still quite limited and Rise team members are reaching out to all persons served and family members to discuss their specific plan returning. In Wisconsin, we have been opening slowly since May 26 and team members there have been in communication with persons served and families about their plans as well. Our Adult Day Programs remain closed for in-person services.

For people who may not be returning right away or are returning only part-time, remote services may be a great option to continue to work on goals. If you are interested in remote services, please speak with your Rise team member. Learn more about Rise’s remote services here.

Rise team members are working with people to determine the date that is best for each person to return to in-person services. Allowing people to return gradually in a phased approach will help to keep everyone safe and enable us to train each person on social distancing, and cleaning and hygiene practices. We would encourage you to our review health and safety plans listed above and direct any questions you have to your Rise team members. People will receive a phone call from a Rise supervisor regarding the reopening plans for their specific program.

Many of our team members are still working right now and supporting people in a variety of ways – on our supported employment teams, providing independent employment services, delivering housing supports, working with our business partners, and providing mental health services. We are so grateful to all of them for everything they do.

While Rise’s center-based services have been closed, we know that this has been challenging for many of you. We miss you all – both our dedicated team members and persons served – and are looking forward to your safe return.

These challenging and uncertain times have required us all to be more adaptable than ever before. Everyone at Rise is doing our very best to make adjustments when things are constantly changing. Thanks you so much for your patience, support and understanding during this time.
