RISE is a nonprofit organization that specializes in home and community-based support services for children and adults with developmental and other disabilities, children with mental health challenges, and aging adults. For over 25 years, our purpose has remained constant. We create opportunities for and with the people we serve, their families, and for the men and women who work in the direct care profession.
RISE was founded in Utah and has locations through out the state. Since its inception in 1987, RISE has been associated with some of the most creative and innovative programs and ideas for supporting people with disabilities and their families. Services are available in urban, rural, and some remote areas.

and much more. RISE has a network of hundreds of Direct Support Professionals working with people with disabilities and their families to help create and sustain the lives they want to live in their homes, families, and in the community.
Outstanding specialists who provide behavior, counseling, therapy, medical, and other services are also part of our team. Levels of support are tailored to people’s needs and service hours range from a few hours a month to 24 hours a day.
