empowers low-income working Memphians to become self-sufficient through transformative financial literacy programs.

NEVER A HANDOUT

Paying for social services treats symptoms for short-term benefits. RISE teaches people to treat themselves for a lifetime and give families the tools to build better lives by their own hands.

With the certainty of tides,
Just like the hopes springing high, 
Still I rise.”
