FUN at Rise
The F.U.N (Families Understanding Nutrition) and A.F.U.N (Adult Families Understanding Nutrition) at Rise is a year-long program to include low-income, families and adults, currently served by the Rise Pantry, who receive a monthly supplemental Rise Pantry box (e.g., ‘Blue Plate’) containing nutritious food, baby and children’s products, cleaning products, healthy recipes and life-style tips, and access to nutritional educational support.
Domestic Violence Prevention
In partnership with Womanspace, Rise provides on-site counseling with a bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker employed by Womanspace. Rise case managers screen for domestic violence with all clients who come to Rise.
We provide scheduled counseling sessions in the privacy of our on-site counseling center.
