OUR FAMILY PRESERVATION DESIGN
The Family Preservation service at RISE works with biological parents who have an open case with the State and are in danger of losing their children to foster care. We serve alongside parents, helping them enhance their protective capacities in order to ensure each child has a loving and safe place to call home. Our goal is to preserve the family structure so the child never has to experience removal.

"We received our first placement, a 4 1/2 yr girl, who had a HUGE personality, determination, and spunk. I'd have to admit she was a handful, my home felt chaotic, and I wasn't sure if fostering was for us after all. My kids would constantly ask to "send her back", but we decided to add new rules and boundaries and to stick it out a while longer. I started seeing changes in all my children, more patience, more playing together, more happiness. We quickly grew to love this little girl as we visibly saw her overcome her own struggles and become more confident in her abilities to accomplish new things."
"I have worked as a receptionist for almost 15 years for RISE Services, Inc. It’s certainly one of the longest jobs I’ve ever had. There is nothing greater than to work, experience, learn, and strive for good things. My heart feels full of gratitude. To be honest, for some with high functioning Autism, having a job is hard. Some people don’t get to have the understanding which I’ve been able to have and also the support and help from many who have worked at RISE Services. It’s been such a great thing in my life and has helped me to become who I am today. I love my bosses, coworkers, and those who work for RISE Services. Thank You!"
"Considering everything, we have so much more joy with these kids in our family than we do turmoil, or sadness. The experience can sometimes pull at your heartstrings but ultimately we are just a normal family learning to live with one another, all with different stories that we are trying to figure out."
