Rise and Bloom Anew in 2022: The Community Arts Center

Rise Life Services is proud to announce the opening of a new location at 2 Melville Road North in South Huntington. The established location and its tenants will support and be open to the community, and the building will now be known as the Rise in Spirit Community Arts Center.

Rise in Spirit is a new Non-for-Profit with a goal to connect and create community hubs for other nonprofits to elevate lives through creative expression. The new property will be able to transform into a unique environment that provides services for education, vocation, recreation, and other support services for our community’s diverse population.

The Center has a rich history of introducing thousands of children and adults to the freedom and confidence they gain by developing their interests and passions through services for education, vocation, and recreation. Staff and instructors place great importance on fostering a strong sense of community inclusion and cultivating unity with individuals of all backgrounds and abilities. Our close relationships with multiple organizations and officials throughout Long Island and beyond will enable us to present options for our students for a wider variety of courses and programs all conducted in a fun and relaxed setting. The Center, which has become a familiar anchor for culture, art, and personal expression over the years, will continue to welcome people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.

Feel free to stop by and check out these wonderful non-profits available to all!
