I'RAISE began as a grassroots organization in the North Bronx with a vision to foster and improve the social and educational outcomes in vulnerable children and youth in urban NYC communities. Over the years, I'RAISE has become a safe haven for hundreds of children through its culturally enriching art programs, individualized educational services, unique big brother big sister mentoring program, and prestigious mental health school programs.
Our programs have helped many young people in foster care, and hundreds of children with mental health challenges. Today, we work every day to ensure children and their families are supported holistically during COVID-19. I'RAISE continues to be a beacon of light to thousands of children and families every year in New York City. We serve approximately 2,000 children and families annually.
