Service is at the heart of everything we do at Rise. Volunteers play a vital role in helping us achieve our mission and enhance the lives of the people we serve.

In 2018, Rise was grateful to have more than 175 volunteers give close to 4,000 hours of their time and expertise to the people we serve. Thank you volunteers for all that you do to support Rise!

There are many ways you can give your time and talents to help us further the important work we do.
