MISSION STATEMENT:

Meskwaki Victim Services recently re-positioned to become RISE.  The new name more adequately represents the program’s identity.  RISE (Resources for Indigenous Survivors and Empowerment) seeks to promote a systemic response that holds offenders accountable and fosters a community sensitive to the needs of domestic violence and sexual assault survivors.  This will be accomplished through the collaborative and coordinated multidisciplinary response of the agencies and organizations that work with Native American domestic violence and sexual assault survivors and their families.


PROGRAM GOALS:

RISE exists to increase positive outcomes for Nation women, children, and their families regardless of ethnicity who are victims/survivors or domestic violence and/or sexual assault and provide outreach/prevention services for the community.

  • Direct Intervention Assistance
  • Collaboration
  • Outreach
  • Education/Prevention
