What we do

The Office of Reentry Partnerships (RISE) is one of the largest re-entry organizations in the City of Philadelphia. Working with other social service agencies, we use proven strategies to make sure more people do well after they leave prison.

Established in 2005 as the City’s flagship “First-Stop” agency, our experienced staff help an average of 1,500 returning individuals per year overcome the barriers to successful re-entry through education, life skills, and job assistance.

Using the idea that #TogetherWeRise, we work to:

  • Connect people to services and resources.
  • Increase public safety.
  • Reduce re-arrests.
  • Help rebuild lives.
