ARISE Program

A dedicated CCS case manager works with each individual enrolled in the ARISE program. Shelter residents meet with the case manager to complete a needs assessment and develop individualized action plans. Based on the individual’s need, men are connected to community resources such as housing, education, employment, medical and mental health services, veteran’s services, chemical dependency and life skills services, such as basic budgeting and coping.

With healing and growth, an individual is better prepared to hold steady employment, successfully maintain housing and restore healthy relationships. In order to achieve this level of stability, connecting to positive community supports is encouraged. Family, community, faith-based programs, mentorships, peer groups and cultural communities all serve as support systems for these men.

ARISE was  founded by the Renton Ecumenical Association of Churches (REACH) in the fall of 2004 and in 2009 transitioned to a program operated by Catholic Community Services (CCS). The program relies on the partnership and support from area churches, ARISE site committee, City of Renton, King County, United Way, the Volunteer Committee of Renton and community volunteers. Since its inception in 2004, over 1,500 volunteers from faith-based organizations have lent a helping hand.
