We envision a progressive, supportive, and collaborative environment
that fosters meaningful growth and provides opportunities to live a life filled with purpose.
Every year we work with more than 2,500 people throughout the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota -- empowering them to reach their full potential at work, at home, and in their communities.
Our comprehensive services and groundbreaking specialty programs are designed to make a sustainable impact for the people we serve in the areas of employment, housing, personal growth, and more.
Rise partners with area businesses, government agencies, housing providers, community organizations and others to enhance our programs.
Innovation and collaboration are at the heart of everything we do. If we can't make something happen, we'll find a partner who will.
Your gift to Rise is an investment in people and your community.
Donations to Rise directly benefit those facing challenges to employment, housing, and personal growth.
Rise is fiscally responsible and will direct your gift to the services of your choice.
“Having a good job gives me a real reason to get up in the morning and has put me in a much better place in all aspects of my life. Rise has helped me determine what I want to achieve and what my future plans might be. I appreciate all their help.”
“Everyone has some kind of disability; it’s just easier for you to see mine. But there are things that I’m really good at doing that maybe you can’t do and you can probably I do things that I can’t. But deep down, we’re all just the same kind of people.”
