About Us


Our Approach

RISE exists for the sole purpose of elevating the lives of children when they are at their most vulnerable.  RISE accomplishes this through helping children realize their full potential by exposing and connecting them to vast opportunities. RISE takes a holistic approach by providing activities designed to build educational success, life and leadership skills, and healthy behaviors and relationships.

The Cool Café is the epicenter of this undertaking. From this central location, children are tutored, taught life and career skills and take part in wilderness outdoor groups, kinesiology/physical movement, art/music, pet therapy and summer programs provided by RISE.
