Life in transition? What now? The RISE Institute – Reaching Into Self Empowerment – can help you figure out the next steps.

Led by trained staff and volunteers, RISE-6 and RISE-Workshops are ideal for women who are:

  • In transition
  • Learning to build confidence and overcome obstacles
  • Adjusting to an empty nest

As a RISE participant, you will:

  • Learn how to achieve your goals of employment, economic self-sufficiency, or healthy relationships
  • Improve your coping skills
  • Tap into your talent
  • Gain strength from past experiences
  • Learn how to make healthy decisions
  • Recognize and extinguish self-defeating thoughts
  • Silence your inner critic
