On The Rise depends on more than 350 individuals, families, businesses, faith-based communities, schools and other groups who provide energy, time, talents and resources to create and maintain a caring environment for the women who come to On The Rise.
While On The Rise does not invite individuals from the community to work directly with program participants, we offer projects and ways to be involved that demonstrate to women, who often feel shunned by society, that the broader community is concerned for their well-being. Please take a moment to review our Volunteer Policy prior to starting your service with us.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Service days - Held on the first Thursday of each month from 5:30-7:30PM and the first Saturday of each month from 10AM-2PM.
- Make a lunch - Volunteers prepare, cook, and drop-off lunch 6 days a week for the women of On The Rise between 8-11AM.
- Coordinate a Moving Home Drive - Support a newly housed woman so she can settle into her new home or coordinate a tangible essentials drive. Here are some of our current in-kind needs.
Our volunteer program is run by our Development team which is also responsible for all social media and e-communications, fulfilling Moving Home Drives, collecting in-kind donations, organizing special events and monitoring our lunch program.
