The Drew Lewis Foundation's mission is to make our city a better place to live by re-creating community through engagement, transformation, and support in under-served neighborhoods. RISE is a program we offer that helps our members reach independence through support and education.
Thursday nights there will be a free community dinner followed by a RISE class, which touches on topics such as how to pay off credit card debt, how to obtain a new job, and develop skills to succeed in the workplace among others. You will get to meet your neighbors while learning more about yourself and how to get ahead in life.
Free childcare is also provided on site. Children will be learning skills and habits to grow and succeed while having fun with their friends from the community.
