Celebrate 20 years of Rise

Over the past 20 years, by partnering with communities to build stronger, more equitable St. Louis area neighborhoods, Rise has assisted with the development of over 4,700 homes, representing over $650 million in community investments, and serving over 10,000 low-income households. Our programs have supported the work of over 20 local community building organizations. Together we help create a higher quality of life in safer, inclusive, and more engaged communities.

You make this work possible

Everything we do is only possible through the support of the community, our partners, funders and everyone that works to make St. Louis a great place to live. That's why we are extending this open invitation to anyone that wants to come celebrate the work done in the past 20 years at Rise.

We would be honored if you could join us.
