The mission of the RISE Foundation is to help people to become self-sufficient by building and sustaining human and financial assets.  This organization was founded by the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis, Memphis Housing Authority and United Way of the Mid-South in October of 1999 to assist Memphis public housing residents in achieving self-sufficiency.  Since our inception RISE has expanded our programming tremendously and have developed unique program extensions that focus on the entire family unit.  The common thread that is woven throughout our programming is financial literacy as well as the goal to empower people to make good financial choices for themselves and their families.
