On the Rise is a day program for homeless women. They create a community where women have the relationships safety and resources they need to move out of homelessness. On the Rise engages with those most in need and support their initiative and strength as they move beyond crisis and discover new possibilities.
On The Rise was founded on the ideal that dependable relationships catalyze healing and transformation. They commit to relationships with chronically homeless women that are long-term and relevant to their entire life experience. Their programmatic model is effective at truly reaching and helping homeless women because it offers a long-term relational approach that focuses on the whole life context.
