80% of youth with developmental disabilities leave high school with no employment and nothing meaningful to do. Without work, they are more likely to live in poverty, have poor health outcomes, and have greater reliance on social welfare. There are few opportunities for our youth to remain engaged in the community they know and that knows them. With your help we can change this! We can raise opportunities for them, and our community will be raised in the process!
We have a 3 phase plan to accomplish our mission
Our Future Home
Raise, Inc. is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization that serves the needs of youth and young adults with disabilities. We were founded in August of 2016 by two local moms, one who has a child with autism and one whose child has an intellectual disability. At this time, we are 100% volunteer led and have no overhead costs. Therefore, all donations will be used to create opportunities for our young people and our community. We are also committed to sharing our process and lessons learned with other groups who are interested in starting inclusive coffee programs in their communities. Your support will impact lives locally, as well as nationally. We hope you will join us in whatever way you see fit, because we hold tight to the belief that Together We ALL Raise!
