Incorporated in 1971, Rise is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization which supports people who have disabilities and other barriers. We are an industry leader, and offer the people we serve the greatest possible level of community integration and a wide range of programming choices so that they may meet their goals.
Most of our programs are intended to assist the people we serve in finding employment opportunities that fit their career objectives and skills. We also have life enrichment programs and mental health support services, as well as programs assisting people in finding safe, affordable housing in some Central Minnesota counties. Rise strives to support the people we serve in the ways they want, such that each individual can achieve their personal measure of vocational achievement, self-sufficiency, and belonging in their communities.
