Rising Ground Close To Home

Juvenile Justice Ministry

Rising Ground is a network of Close to Home Facilities around New York City, and we have partnered with them since 2018, providing mentoring services in 4 of their group homes and 2 aftercare sites. Our key programs at these facilities are weekly Dinner Parties with residents and a yearly summer entrepreneurship program where residents and newly released youth are taught how to start small businesses and earn money.
