Rise is honored to have more than 100 volunteers who have served 3,000-plus hours this year to help us achieve our mission of unlocking potential and opening doors to success.

We are thankful for our volunteers who:

  • Support artists to share their voice through art in Art Speaks
  • Teach the people we serve financial literacy
  • Assist on fun outings like bowling, Meals on Wheels, and other community activities
  • Help organize and make our special events run smoothly
  • Participate in recreational activities with the people we serve in our Adult Day programs like crafts, exercising, and playing games
  • Bring in their therapy animals to help relax the people we serve and our team members
  • Welcome people into our administrative offices as a volunteer receptionist.
