What began in 1994 as a program to help my daughter through loss and grief started a revolution in the city of Boston. Over 1,500 girls, 200 volunteers, 15 Directors, and many organizations have participated in The RISE (Reaching Into Self-Esteem) Girls Program. As we enter the 26th year the future goal of R.I.S.E. is to open a center for women and girls.
We have secured a 3 story building to be rehabbed with the R.I.S.E. girls program on the first floor, the women’s program, and the research institute on the second floor, the retreat center on the third floor, an outdoor garden and walking trails. Our goal is to begin construction in September 2020.
