Keep community compassion going — Scott Strong
The last 16 months have tested even the best-situated families. We at RISE Wisconsin have heard from participants in our programs that their stress, worry, anxiety, isolation and feelings of depression have been heightened during the pandemic.
The directors of The Evjue Foundation, the charitable arm of The Capital Times, have approved a new round of grants to 38 community organizations totaling $548,000. Included in this… $50,000 to help RISE Wisconsin renovate its headquarters that houses three nonprofits on Fordem Avenue and $50,000 to Access Community Health’s program to serve those who are unable to qualify for health care coverage.
A Dane County nonprofit that brings services to children, families and young adults will begin renovations of its building on Friday.RISE Wisconsin announced Wednesday that the groundbreaking for its building and renovation will begin at 10:30 a.m. at its location on 2120 Fordem Avenue in Madison.
RISE’s renovated building will feature a community space and a kitchen that will help teach cooking skills to at-risk adolescents and young adults and could be used to prepare food for their groups and small fundraisers.
More children, families and young adults will be able to get help here from Dane County community services.
