RaiseUp Families

“If it were easy, everyone would do it.” We have all heard these words during our lives and they may feel truer today than ever. RaiseUp Families is 100% privately funded by good people like you who believe in raising people up. I could not be prouder to share this past year’s accomplishments with you and I look forward to witnessing the many strides our clients will make in the year to come alongside you. - Message from the Executive Director

RaiseUp Families

“Getting Ahead” is a curriculum that assists individuals living in poverty in evaluating their lives so they can develop the skills necessary to survive and flourish. Participants examine their own pasts and create new futures, including developing a written plan for prosperity that is broken down into manageable and achievable steps. buff.ly/3BU3sDr

RaiseUp Families

What happens after clients graduate from our HandUp program? Many choose to advance their financial management skills by participating in a program called “Getting Ahead.”

We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to lead these critical groups. Here’s what the commitment looks like:

- Actual workshop – 2 hours/week for 5 months (including graduation) – around 40 hours
- Meet to prepare for workshop each week – 1 hour/week – around 18 hours
- Meet to debrief following workshop each week – 1 hour/week – around 18 hours

Workshops are currently being held online so don’t let geography stop you from becoming a volunteer facilitator! Contact koralee@raiseupfamilies.org for more information.
