Our goal is to help to end acts of cruelty that victimize people like bullying, child abuse, domestic violence, human trafficking and other types hate related activities. We 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.

    Outreach Statement
    R.I.S.E. & STAND hears and investigates the cases of any person, regardless of race, religions, or nationality, who are victims of bullying or some form of abuse. We 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. 
    Vision Statement
    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 we are experiencing, we endeavor to provide an increase in staff to respond immediately to requests for assistance. We will also continue to expand our web site to ensure it is thorough and informative.
    To Achieve Our Mission
    R.I.S.E. & STAND provides training opportunities to develop its employees through seminars, community service, leadership roles, and mentoring in order to achieve our mission.  Our 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 we can find them suitable homes.


    A)  Educate parents, children and students, teachers, adults, about the tragic consequences of bullying in public as well as online, about human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual abuse and addictions to name a few. We want people to be aware that these issues are taking place all around them and teach them what they can do to help others or themselves and prevent these issues from happening.

    B)  Take Action – R.I.S.E & STAND believes in taking immediate action on reports of bullying, harassment, stalking, domestic abuse, rape, sex crimes and other issues that are brought to our attention that victimize individuals.  The longer a person is a victim, the more likely the trauma will become a lifelong emotional and sometimes physical handicap.  Many suicides have also been attributed to these issues when there is no one to stand up for the victim.

    The shameful act of these crimes is everyone’s problem.  At some time in our life we will all be touched by these acts. Abuse around the world can be minimized by the combined effort of many concerned and compassionate individuals, through social and financial means.

    If every parent or individual who has endured these types of trauma, or knows someone who has, donated just $10.00 dollars to R.I.S.E & STAND, there would be enough financial support to help thousands of people, Those who have enduring these horrible acts all over the United States. The dream and goal of all the members of R.I.S.E. & STAND is that these issues will be a thing talked about but rarely experienced in the future.

     C.  Reach -R.I.S.E. & STAND wants to reach people all over the globe so everyone is able to help fight and put an end to these vile acts.

    1.  Inspire– We hope through our blogs, connections, fundraisers & stories everyone will be inspired to stand up and help make a change for a better future for all!
    2.  Support – We aim to support in any way we can those who have been victimized by these terrible actions and hope all our supporters will help others as well. We don’t want anyone to ever feel alone in their time of need.
    3.  Empower – We hope by all the information we supply to educate all that every viewer will feel empowered to want to rise and stand up for one another and make a difference!

    G. R.I.S.E. & STAND also LOVES Animals. We take a portion of donations to help different animal shelters and organizations to help save animals who have become victim of cruelty. We even house strays ourselves if needed, nurture them back to health and re-house them when they are ready for a very low cost.

    A donation can be made by clicking the “Donate” Paypal button or the GoFundMe button found on the right hand side of every page on our website.  Donations are VERY important and we appreciate very one.
