By RISE Program Director Mary Crandall
David came to RISE after being released form the Linn County jail. He was homeless, jobless and very depressed. Rise helped him get into a construction training program – one that pays while being trained. RISE also found an apartment and provided furnishings for David. David comes into RISE now to see how we’re doing and to visit about his job and life. We continue to support David emotionally but he is independent now and making his own money. We are so proud of David!
