RISE is a nonprofit corporation that is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.

“Building Healthy Communities by helping individuals tap into their own resiliency.”

We were formed on the basis of the need to provide assistance to those individuals who have the resilience to strive for excellence but lack the necessary resources to achieve them in a struggling Shreveport community. We are focused on identifying and equipping individuals with the tools and resources that are needed for them to be successful.


“Where Resiliency Meets Resources.”

By hosting events, providing scholarships and helping struggling families, R.I.S.E. Shreveport was established in 2016. Our charitable acts began in 2012 when two local companies joined forces to sponsor an annual event - Party with a Purpose (PWAP).
