The global crisis of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has shuttered many businesses and has left our community desperate to find work. There are so many who need to rely on unemployment until further notice, and in some cases may be waiting to receive a check that would barely cover their expenses. We don’t know how long this pandemic and state of our nation will last, which is what causes so much fear.

An important fact in a situation such as this, is that the individuals who live in our residences need care no matter what. RISE Life Services has many essential positions. We have multiple types of positions to fill within our organization, so we are actively hiring right now for work that will be secure into the future no matter the economic climate.
