Details: While most of Rise’s programs focus on employment and affordable housing, we also recognize the importance of personal growth in all aspects of one’s life. People participating in Rise’s day training and habilitation (DTH) programs have opportunities to engage in life enrichment activities as part of their weekday schedule. For instance, people have the option to volunteer in various community activities, such as packaging food products at Feed My Starving Children, picking up baked goods from local coffee shops and stores to take to area food shelves, or delivering Meals on Wheels. Those who have an interest in art have the opportunity to participate in Art Speaks to explore and express themselves through a wide range of art media. Artists find their voice and may share it with others by displaying their artwork in public, private, and corporate sites throughout the Twin Cities area. As people near retirement age, they may not be interested in working five days a week, but want to keep active. Rise’s Adult Day Program at the Emma B. Howe Northtown Family YMCA enables people to work a few days a week at CIP-Coon Rapids, as well as participate in fitness classes and healthy living activities at the YMCA the other weekdays. Rise also offers Adult Day Programming at the Mounds View YMCA. Members of the Consumer Advisory Council have been elected by their peers to represent them in monthly meetings and work together to encourage and use people’s ideas to discuss concerns and issues that affect adults with disabilities. The council members look for solutions to common issues such as transportation, employment barriers, and self-advocacy. Education is a key component of the Council. Through guest speakers and attending conferences, Council members learn about self-advocacy, working with the Minnesota State Legislature, and gaining self-confidence in their abilities to make choices in their lives. The Council also gives back to the community by holding special events to raise money for other nonprofit groups such as the United Way and CEAP’s (Community Emergency Assistance Program) food shelf located in Blaine.
