RISE: The Reno Initiative for Shelter & Equality

The Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Reno, Nevada. Our initiative is to cultivate a greater sense of dignity and humility by providing equal access to shelter, knowledge, and opportunity. We seek to create a stronger community through the use of shared resources and mutual aid.

RISE is uniquely qualified to serve our unsheltered community since many of our colleagues have a shared lived experience and have overcome life trauma connected to poverty. We have compassionate relationships with those we serve while providing guidance and developing life skills. RISE does not assume the role of an institution when interacting with an individual, rather we developed peer relationships which provide needed support and the opportunity for growth.
