About Us

Begun in October, 1999, RISE was the brainchild of the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis, the Memphis Housing Authority and the United Way of the Mid-South. Born to help Memphis public housing residents achieve financial self-sufficiency, and thereby making the city a healthier place, RISE is about raising expectations.

Above poverty, bankruptcy and foreclosure. Above unemployment, crime and self-destruction. Above depression, anger and apathy.

Through strategies we’ve pioneered and continue to refine, RISE has developed unique expertise in helping entry-level wage earners to budget, save and accumulate assets. Our work has led to a deep understanding of the larger community issues that are working against families in Memphis and Shelby County.
