Donate Monthly

The Sustainers' Circle is a special group of monthly supporters. Committing to a monthly financial gift is a convenient way for you to support On The Rise and provides us with a reliable source of income to help women who are homeless or in crisis as they take care of their immediate survival needs and move towards long-term goals.

How you can make an impact each month:

  • $10 sponsors practical support for one woman each month (such as buying her a new hat and new socks or paying for a medical co-payment or covering the fee to get a copy of her birth certificate.)
  • $25 buys a hot breakfast for 30 women in the Safe Haven for one morning each month.
  • $50 allows a Community Advocate to accompany and support a woman as she goes to an important appointment each month.
