I #RISEUp for compassion in all our lives after 30 years in the Fire Service and having the unfortunate honor of providing medical aid to countless survivors of violence, including those traumatized by sexual and intimate partner violence. My wish is that future first responders won't have to respond to these emergencies because future generations of men learn how to cope with disappointment, anger, and other triggers in a manner that is healthy, productive, and free of rage.
Please join me in RISEing up and consider helping us raise $45,000 before the end of the year. Your donation will support vital services for survivors and their loved ones, and enure we are preventing violence before it starts. By donating now, you are investing in the future of a healthy and safe San Luis Obispo County.
Why do you #RISEUp?
Since 1975, RISE has made it their mission to help survivors—our friends, neighbors, and loved ones in San Luis Obispo County—through essential services like counseling, 24-hour support line, legal services, emergency shelter, and prevention programming.
As the organization embarks on its 45th year, RISE is facing over $115,000 in cuts to state funding. Join your community in sustaining these vital services for survivors and families, and you can help ensure RISE services continue for another 45 years.
