We could use your help...

Do you have work available through your business or part-time help at home that you could offer a RISE participant?


Could you, your church or organization help with housing?  Immediately?  Long-term?

Truck and Delivery

We have supplies to deliver for those in need and need a volunteer with a truck to assist - hopefully one day each week. We have had many calls wanting to donate furniture and household items, and we have an ongoing need to fill in helping our clients settle into new homes. But we are struggling to make it happen for lack of delivery personnel. Message here if you can help. Thanks so very much!

Specific Items

Could you donate the following for those in need?

  • Back packs
  • Tents
  • Bike locks
  • Bikes


Could you donate financially to our cause?  This would allow us to help others temporarily as they are getting their lives started again.  Send all donations to:
