Rise: Women’s Philanthropy Initiative

Rise with Us

Rise is a community of diverse, dynamic, and generous women with a shared purpose: empowering women and children experiencing homelessness in Cleveland to rise up from their circumstances through the power of hope.

To create lasting paths out of poverty, the women of Rise unite their voices and their philanthropic resources to amplify impact, progress through unity, and provide hope to Cleveland families for generations to come.

Founded in 2021 as a supportive ministry of The City Mission, Rise prepares to answer the call of a city in need of hope and change through strategic philanthropy.

Because the truth is, when women share their energy and financial resources, we have the ability to transform an entire community.


2024 Rise Project: Transitional Housing

Thanks to the support of our Rise members, this year essential funding will go towards furnishing the 16 units in our Rothstein Village Transitional Housing!

Cleveland’s first Transitional Housing to be built on Laura’s Home campus, we are truly grateful for their generosity to help furnish these units to provide safe, dignified shelter to mothers and their children.
