In 2021, Operation Liberty Hill partnered with United Way to create the Rise Up program. to work with the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) population in our service area to assist clients in becoming more financially stable.
We all know people who are ALICE - these workers educate our children, care for our elderly, serve us in restaurants and retail, keep us healthy, yet do not earn enough to support their own families. ALICE households are forced to make tough choices, such as paying for quality child care or paying the rent, paying for a prescription or paying the water bill.
Rise Up provides clients with wrap-around services, e.g. financial assistance with rent or a utility bill, help them enroll in a free GED course or job training, connect clients with employment opportunities, provide a free money management fundamentals course, and more.
If you are interested in participating in Rise Up, please call 512-778-4176 today!
If you are interested in partnering with OLH in support of Rise Up, we'd love to start that discussion! Please call 512-778-4176 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
