Services

On The Rise provides a Safe Haven for homeless women or women in crisis to access other agencies to address many issues, including:

  • Childhood and adult abuse and assault;
  • Domestic violence;
  • Addiction;
  • Housing;
  • Address for receiving mail;
  • Medical care;
  • Mental health care;
  • Legal and criminal issues;
  • Education and training.

The Safe Haven is a safe place where women may go to attend to personal needs which may have been neglected during years of homelessness. These include a shower, meals, clothing, and some privacy for a nap. Safe Haven will provide connections to other resources as well.

Community advocates will accompany women to appointments in the community to provide support and assistance in navigating services.

On The Rise also sponsors other activities: cultural outings, weekly creative groups such as painting and writing, and activities like massage.
