Rise: Women’s Philanthropy Initiative
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
2022 Rise Project: Laura's Home Lounge Renovations
Laura’s Home has five lounges throughout the residential halls that need to be renovated. The goal of the lounges is to provide a clean, safe space other than residents’ rooms for relaxing, resting, working, and exercising. These spaces must be designed to accommodate residents with varying challenges and meet the needs of the children residing at Laura’s Home. New furniture will provide a dignified and comfortable space for residents, while wall-mounted play panels will provide safe activities for children. Rise membership dues will go towards funding this project in 2022. Unique volunteer opportunities with the women and children staying at Laura’s Home will be available throughout the year in connection with this project and we invite you to join us.
