Rise – Cottage Grove

People We Serve

Rise Cottage Grove provides life enrichment and employment services for people aged 18 and older with developmental/intellectual disabilities and related conditions.

We work with local businesses to create job opportunities and match persons served to positions that will maximize their success. We place people in community group employment settings, as well as individual competitive employment jobs. Life Enrichment services are available for those who are not working, or are working part-time, but would still enjoy staying an active and vital part of their community. We believe life enrichment services are a vital and integral part of Rise’s function in the community.

Though we are an adult services provider, we are able to work with transition-age youth in certain situations.
