RISE succeeds because it is a community-based effort designed to strengthen the educational system is the place it needs it most: in the low-income families whose kids suffer summer learning loss and consequently start out behind each fall. The RISE program is a partnership of concerned organizations who pitch in with individual assets to create this program.
• Gainesville Housing Authority GHA provides funding through a ROSS grant, recruiting, grant writing and administrative assistance.
• Gainesville City Schools provides our RISE location at Fair Street Elementary School, transportation for Gainesville City children, and professional assistance with curriculum and testing.
RISE is made possible by grants from:
United Way of Hall County
