People have a basic human right to live free of intimate partner and sexual violence. Advocacy, education, prevention and public policy are the keys to social change. We encourage the community to take a stand and RISE with us to create a world free of sexual assault and intimate partner violence.
As a nonprofit organization that serves both victims of intimate partner violence and sexual assault/abuse and their loved ones, RISE provides comprehensive programs, services and resources to the community.
The tagline of RISE - Respect. Inspire. Support. Empower. - embodies the work of RISE. We believe that RESPECT is the cornerstone to ending violence and creating peace. We strive to INSPIRE the community to be active in the movement to end gender-based violence. We SUPPORT loved ones of those affected by sexual assault/abuse and intimate partner violence and we EMPOWER victims to heal from trauma and transform their lives.
