Rise with Us
Rise is a community of diverse, dynamic, and generous women with a shared purpose: empowering women and children experiencing homelessness in Cleveland to rise up from their circumstances through the power of hope.
To create lasting paths out of poverty, the women of Rise unite their voices and their philanthropic resources to amplify impact, progress through unity, and provide hope to Cleveland families for generations to come.
Founded in 2021 as a supportive ministry of The City Mission, Rise prepares to answer the call of a city in need of hope and change through strategic philanthropy.
Because the truth is, when women share their energy and financial resources, we have the ability to transform an entire community.
IMPACT + UNITY + HOPE
Laura's Home Expansion Project
2021 Rise Project
For its first annual project, Rise will be raising funds in support of the Here I Stand capital campaign. This project includes a 10,000 square foot youth space, expanded adult Resource Center, dedicated classroom space for adult learning and program hub, increased private office space for community partners working with our clients, and overflow sleeping space with attached showers and storage for times of critically wintry cold weather when rooms are full.
Rise membership dues will go towards funding this project in 2021. Unique volunteer opportunities with the women and children staying at Laura’s Home will be available throughout the year!
