Each year our dedicated staff works tirelessly to provide our residents with the best possible living conditions and experiences. Because of the nature of the services they provide, these selfless people endure long hours, cope with frequent disruptions to their personal lives and always put our residents first. While the state and federal funding that we rely on to help compensate these selfless angels continues to dwindle, it is our amazing community of donors that have continued to help us develop and maintain important life-enriching programs and increase wages for the majority of our critical staff members.

While we will always strive to put our staff and residents first, we can never forget that we’re a not-for-prot that is heavily reliant on government funding, and without the support of private and corporate donors there would be no way to provide the best possible care for our residents or truly show our appreciation to our amazing staff. That’s why, each year we hand-select a group of special donors and employees that have demonstrated incredible commitment and loyalty to our organization and have earned Rise’s High Roller honors status.

This week we will be enjoying two incredible days of fun, food, camaraderie and celebration as we salute Rise Life Services’ 2019 High Rollers. We look forward to this annual trip in Atlantic City. Special thanks to all who made this trip possible…and thank you to our employees who work hard each and every day!
