Board of Trustees
Rise Recovery’s Board members all have a passion for youth and families that are struggling to survive the consequences of drug and alcohol abuse. That passion drives them to be very active and dedicated, shown by their financial support and help with fundraising and community outreach. They are also involved in Strategic Planning, financial oversight and program development, with each serving on one or more of the Executive, Fund Raising, Finance and Public Relations committees.
