Thanks to the support of the women of Hearts of Hope, Rise Cafe will soon be open and impacting our community. In anticipation of this new enterprise, we have recognized the need to ensure adequate and safe parking for both City Rescue Mission and Rise Cafe. Safe and reliable transportation is key for our clients who utilize their personal vehicles to access services and employment in the community. With street parking as the only current option available for client parking, it is a high priority to provide secure and well-lit parking areas.
In addition to parking, it is also crucial to provide funding for the ongoing needs of the Vocational Culinary Program. Made possible by the completion of the Kitchen of Hope, this program, along with the Rise Cafe, will provide professional training, certification, and hands on learning. Program participants will be provided with a long-term career path with a living wage income, thereby diminishing the chances of recycling into homelessness. Funds raised will be utilized to provide instructional materials and equipment, and certification and licensing for participants.
Full funding of these projects will allow us to continue growing and developing programs that offer lifelong solutions to people experiencing homelessness. These projects will:
- Ensure secure parking options for staff and clients commuting to work and community services
- Provide key components for the Vocational Culinary Program
- Empower clients with marketable employment skills
