Refer a Survivor

"When I came to RR, I was afraid, lost, and alone. The staff at Resilience Rising made me feel safe to talk about what I needed to for the first time ever. I couldn’t be more grateful for the support that Resilience Rising gave me so that I could move forward towards success and freedom with a renewed sense of independence."

"I was welcomed with beautiful strong female staff members. It was almost instant that I knew I was in the right place at the right time. RR helped me become the hopeful and motivated person I am today."

"RR is one of the best resources I’ve ever had that never let me down. RR is still sitting by my side and helping me through it all and navigating me. If it wasn’t for RR I don’t know where I would be or what I would be doing. I have become a so much better version of who I can and have a bright future."
