I remember being really nervous about the job duties after my first interview and thinking I probably was not going to take the job. I am so glad I pushed myself out of my comfort zone because this is my favorite job I have had by far.

The culture of Rise is different than other companies I have worked for. Because working at Rise means interacting with those we serve as well as the community, each day is different. As the activity coordinator, I get to choose to plan things that everyone enjoys, which creates a more pleasant work environment. No two days are ever the same here so it is hard to get bored.

~ Jamie Farley, Activity Coordinator

I have been thrilled to be working for Rise the past 3 months, and I'm loving every moment of it! The support and camaraderie I receive from my colleagues is unparalleled. Not to mention it's a great feeling to be able to make a difference in people's lives, and I'm excited for what the future holds within the company!

~ Victoria Rahn, Employment Consultant

What's unique about Rise is the many opportunities to try different things and being able to pull from my strengths and interests.

~ Becky Rother, Director of Quality Assurance

What makes Rise special is that they work from the bottom up. They really put a lot of effort in with their DSPs because they’re really the heart of this company and this field. Their input, their wants, and needs are really important to the higher-ups of Rise.

~ Rachel Meyer, Program Manager and former Direct Support Professional

I can't imagine a better career or a finer place to work. Thank you Rise for the opportunity live the mission for the past 20 years.

~ Robert Reedy, Senior Director of Vocational Services
