RISE- Helping Community & Family Thrive. Community Partnerships and Center for Families announced the name and logo of the newly merged agency at our 5/19/17 Circle of Hope fundraiser. RISE was chosen as the new agency name because it symbolizes determination, growth, and optimism of both agencies. More importantly, it represents the resiliency of our program participants. The individuals and families we serve have overcome adversity, trauma, and sometimes tragedy. Our services and programs provide support, hope, and compassion to help people overcome barriers in their lives.


RISE serves over 6,800 children, families, and individuals each year. Our programs and services help those in our community most in need to overcome mental health and health crises, homelessness, poverty, academic challenges, and more.The programs at RISE include: Early Childhood Initiative, Welcome Baby, Parent Child Home Program, Parenting for School Success, Parents Place Plus, Children Come First, Transition to Independence, Court Ordered Evaluations, Comprehensive Community Services, and The Respite Center.

We will implementing the new brand over the summer including rolling out a new website. In the future, you can find us at www.RISEwisconsin.org. A special Thank You to Candorem for guiding the re-branding process and to Green Clock Films for producing our reveal video. To watch the full video, click HERE.
