Our mission is to create innovative lasting solutions to fight homelessness, hunger and poverty in Morgan County. Rising Up is developing temporary and permanent solutions and programs that will help individuals and families rise up from homelessness and poverty and keep hunger at bay.
Rising Up’s programs are designed to keep our homeless and hungry neighbors engaged and working to achieve sustainable independence in a safe and trusted environment. We offer job search assistance, advocacy, hot meals, showers, housing search assistance, a client choice food pantry, overnight winter warming center, connecting dots to other services and much more. These services help empower people to make their own decisions; transform people from being dependent to being independent; and rebuild a solid foundation to rise up from their current situations and move forward on a path to sustainable independence that will help them become productive, contributing members of our great community!
