Give Back - TOGETHER WE RISE

About Together We Rise

Together We Rise is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised of motivated young adults and former foster youth. Our vision is to improve the lives of children in foster care, who often find themselves forgotten and neglected by the public. We collaborate with individuals, companies, and community partners to bring resources to foster youth and use service-learning activities to educate volunteers on issues surrounding the foster care system.

TWR works with hundreds of foster agencies, social workers, CASA advocates, and other partners to bring our programs to foster youth across the nation. Our foundation has allowed us to provide thousands of foster youth across the country with new bicycles, college supplies, and sweet cases so that children do not have to travel from home to home with their belongings in a trash bag.

Their Mission

Together We Rise is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the way youth navigate through the foster care system in America.

How we make a difference

The foster care system can be a confusing and sometimes disheartening place, but through our fundraising and network of passionate volunteers, we strive to give children in foster care a brighter future, a sense of normalcy and belonging. We have multiple programs and volunteer opportunities so each individual or group can select the right fit for them.

Our main programs are Sweet Cases, Building Bikes, Build A Board, Birthday Boxes, Superhero Boxes and our Family Fellowship, which is the largest college scholarship available for youth aging out of the foster care program. But with the help of our passionate volunteers and the support of our generous donors, we strive to give each child in foster care a brighter future.
