Agency Name: RISE

Formed in: 2019

Goal: $10,000

Why your gift is needed:

Gifts, both large and small, help RISE to transform the hearts, minds, and lives of individuals with criminal histories. Donations to RISE are used where needed most and provide the financial foundation for all the work we do to serve our mission that "all people will find freedom from cycles of incarceration."

What your gift will do:

Donations to RISE help provide reentry programming at 7 Nebraska state correctional facilities, intensive pre- and post-release case management services, job readiness training, entrepreneurship training, housing and supporting the basic needs for citizens returning to the community from incarceration.

Agency Summary:

At RISE, transformation starts pre-release and continues post-release. Our inside/out model bridges incarceration to the community and considers all the critical steps in that journey. We prepare and train people for each phase through intensive character development, employment readiness, job creation through entrepreneurship and case management. We transform people in the community by building awareness and empathy that leads to support and opportunity. These connections heal families, create employment pathways and lower recidivism.
