Started in 2013, the Rise YP Board is a volunteer-run, working board, consisting of 25 to 30 young professionals, who apply, are selected and commit to volunteer for a one-year term. The primary mission of the board is awareness of Rise and our work in the community, fundraising to support the mission of Rise, and utilizing our skills in the community to assist neighborhoods with a variety of projects.
The Rise Young Professionals have many accomplishments and milestones since the inception of the group in 2013. Here are a few highlights:

High quality, clean, safe, and affordable housing is a basic need for all families. Like the rest of the country, our region was already experiencing an affordable housing crisis before the pandemic. Now, the need for quality affordable housing has become even more urgent. Rise is continuing to help support those who need it most. Please consider a contribution to lift our community’s most vulnerable people and their families.
