Mentoring kids to acheive post-high
Many of our kids experience traumatic events suddenly and unexpectedly. These have the potential to negatively impact them for life. We strive to help kids thrive rather than merely survive.
Recently, Rise Up! experienced a traumatic, unexpected event.
A 12 year recurring grant of $195,000, representing 40% of our budget, was not renewed. Rise Up! has reduced our budget by 25%, and each staff person chose to take a significant pay reduction.
