RISE Life Services provides many services, starting with residential, and help elevate the lives of others. We cannot do this successfully without the help of others. Each year, we share a Wish List of items that we would like for our homes and programs. These items are not provided by any funding and we rely on fundraising and donations to obtain these items.

In 2019, through the generosity of our supporters and the success of our fundraising efforts, we were able to grant more than half of the wishes on our list! We are very pleased to report this to you. Now for the new year, our staff have all contributed to put together a current list of things that would make a significant difference in the lives of the individuals we serve at RISE. Please review this list and share it with others. Some items are small and some are at a higher value. Any support we receive, makes an incredible difference. Help us to grant wishes!
