The Prepare For Winter Dinner - Thank You!

On Thursday, October 10th, more than 300 guests joined On The Rise for the 22nd Annual Prepare for Winter Dinner. We are excited to report that, thanks to you, we raised over $220,000 in critical funds to support our Safe Haven and Keep The Keys programs at 341 Broadway! 

We were delighted that so many of you gathered to hear from our Event Chair, Carol Kelly, and our speaker, Board Member Emerita, Carol Goss (read her speech here!) and Board Chair, Josh Gerber.

We want to say a special thank you to the On The Rise women who generously shared their reflections on their unique and special relationships with On The Rise in the evening's videos.

Thanks to your generosity, nearly 450 On The Rise women from Greater Boston will find safety, tangible essentials, and the supportive relationships that they need to overcome challenges and move out of homelessness.  

We want to express our sincere gratitude to each and every one of you.

Thank you for your commitment to the community,

Your friends at On The Rise

On Monday, May 20th over 80 friends celebrated the long-time service of beloved Board Chair, Carol Goss. In early 2019, Carol was elected On The Rise's first ever Board Member Emerita after 13 years of Board service at On The Rise. Together, as a community, we honor her steadfast service as a dedicated ambassador and relationship builder on behalf of the hundreds of homeless and formerly-homeless women in our Safe Haven and Keep The Keys programs.

Carol's accomplishments were recognized with a proclamation by the Mayor of the City of Cambridge, Mayor Marc McGovern and a letter of praise from State Representative Marjorie Decker. As Board Member Emerita, Carol continues to be a source of enthusiasm, guidance and support for the On The Rise community. The Friends of Carol (FOC) Fund has been created to celebrate her legacy of service and steward On The Rise through a strategic planning process for the organization's continuing success. 

Thank you Carol, for your remarkable leadership!
