Winter Haven - For this month's "In the Spotlight" section, we had the pleasure of getting to know an organization dedicated to fighting bullying.
Meet the Rise & Stand, Inc. Organization.
R.I.S.E. & STAND is a non-profit organization committed to raising awareness about bullying & abuse. Their goal is to help end acts of cruelty that victimize people like bullying, child abuse, domestic violence, human trafficking and other types of hate-related actions. They use a series of effective actions and employ the leadership of trained volunteers and team members.
R.I.S.E. & STAND is exclusively an educational and charitable organization.
R.I.S.E. & STAND hears and investigates the cases of any person, regardless of race, religion, or nationality, who are victims of bullying or some form of abuse. They provide support through mentoring, referring victims to shelters or safe havens, notifying law enforcement, funding, or distributing supplies or necessities. Need and assistance are evaluated on a case by case basis.
R.I.S.E. & STAND’s vision is to empower victims so they no longer feel alone or helpless when enduring a traumatic incident. With the remarkable growth they are experiencing, they endeavor to provide an increase in staff to respond immediately to requests for assistance. They will also continue to expand their web site to ensure it is thorough and informative.
R.I.S.E. & STAND provides training opportunities to develop its employees through seminars, community service, leadership roles, and mentoring in order to achieve their mission.
Their members are inspired by a lifelong commitment to building an online community through a unique combination of training, community leadership development, and direct service.
Note: R.I.S.E. & STAND also helps and houses animals until they can find them suitable homes.
