Redefining Independence, Safety, and Empowerment

Our R.I.S.E. program is for current clients, dates will be shared internally. 

R.I.S.E. is a free education & empowerment program that covers topics on employment readiness, financial security, and community involvement, and provides participants with the tools and confidence to set goals, network with resources and fellow community members and reach new milestones. This 9-week curriculum includes skill development on: 

  • Resumes, cover letters, and interview preparation 
  • Budgeting and long-term financial planning 
  • Education on family law, civic engagement, and education options 

Survivors of domestic violence often cite financial stability as the reason behind their decision to stay with or return to their abusers. Because of this, R.I.S.E. provides education and opportunity for participants to gain independence, safety, and empowerment to move forward. 

Recognizing that AWP's domestic violence clients face many hurdles, R.I.S.E. provides meals, computers, and course materials during the 9-week program.
