RISE (formerly Faith Community Service Fund) was founded in 2005 as a bridge between the faith community, community agencies, and other non-profit organizations to assist Weld County residents with utility and rent emergency relief.
RISE continues to offer limited Emergency Relief through our Getting Ahead program. RISE wants to help make a generational impact. We provide educational opportunities through the Getting Ahead program and Alpha classes. In partnership with other local agencies, we offer loving support to individuals through our Getting Ahead followup initiatives. We establish an ongoing support group for each Getting Ahead graduating class where classmates love and encourage each other towards accomplishing their goals. RISE is partnering with local agencies to accomplish this ongoing support needed after completing the classroom courses.
Our approach at RISE is to have “Faith in Lasting Change” for ourselves and our neighbors that we serve.
Rise currently has no staff employees and is run by volunteer and contract labor resources.
