Rise Up (Rockaway)

RISE UP is a 501-c-3 not for profit corporation formed by Rockaway area houses of worship, local citizens, and concerned business owners specifically to offer a hand-up to those facing temporary economic hardships. Rockaway does not have its own social services agency – hence the need to respond in this critical area of need.

RISE UP is committed to providing goods, services, relief resources, advocacy and emotional/spiritual support to the impoverished. We affirm the value, dignity, and right of every human being to enjoy access to life-sustaining and life-nurturing resources promoting self-sufficiency and greater participation in the wider community.
