Additional Details:

RISE Youth Housing Program provides affordable housing for young people who would otherwise be homeless. RISE also provides wrap-around supports to help youth in the program recover, and stabilize.

Young people entering RISE often come directly from shelter. For most, RISE housing is the first place they’ve had of their own. For this reason, we would like to be able to offer youth some of the items needed to make a first place comfortable. This includes:
– Twin sized bed sheets
– Twin comforter
– Pillow cases
– Set of towels
– Kitchen Towels
– Laundry Basket
– Laundry soap
– Dish soap

Approximately 40 youth/year in the RISE Program. 40 Kits would be a year’s supply.
