Rhody non-profits ~ RISE
Rhode Islanders Sponsoring Education
RISE is a non-profit based in Providence, that focuses on providing mentoring and education opportunities for the children of prisoners in the State penal system. Through donations and volunteers, RISE gives the children of prisoners scholarships and mentoring to "break the intergenerational cycle of poverty, crime and addiction that too often threatens them."
RISE is looking for mentoring volunteers. If you have some time to help a child ages 7 to 14, building a positive, supportive relationship through two outings each month, please visit their site or call 401-421-2010. To donate to RISE, visit their donation page.
