What We Do

RISE is the largest nonprofit organization in Nebraska focused solely on habilitative programming in prisons and reentry support. At RISE, transformation starts pre-release and continues post-release. Our inside/out model bridges incarceration to the community and considers all the critical steps in that journey.

We prepare and train people for each phase through intensive character development, employment readiness, job creation through entrepreneurship, family programming and case management. We transform people in the community by building awareness and empathy that leads to support and opportunity. These connections heal families, create employment pathways and lower recidivism. The mission of RISE is to break generational cycles of incarceration.

Interesting Info

We have graduated 533 individuals from our In-Prison program in 7 state facilities.
We've welcomed home over 143 RISE In-Prison Program Graduates from Nebraska state correctional facilities.
The overall employment rate for RISE In-Prison Program graduates is 90%.
