Support. Celebrate. Uplift.
We All Rise: African American Resource Center is a registered non-profit agency. Although our work started back in 2017, we officially opened our doors to community in November of 2019. Since then, we have served over 2,100 folks in our community.
OUR VISION AND MISSION
The vision of We All Rise is to create and help restore a vibrant African American community. Through uplifting, skill building, and intentionally targeting root causes of systemic oppression, we actively promote the healing of all.
The mission of We All Rise calls for the collective liberation of African Americans navigating at the margins of society.
This holistic approach inspires a village mentality that includes the following supports:
Victim Health Services
Mental Health Service
Skill building and Mentorship
"We do it for the youth."
Our work started back in 2017 when our current Executive Director, Robin Scott, learned that less than 1% of our youth were enrolled in after school programming. She then began working to establish a safe and unapologetic space where our black youth could learn their history, increase their self advocacy, and become more positive participants in healthy relationships.
While running her 28 week curriculum, she quickly learned that in order to fully support the youth, we need to support the family unit as a whole. We All Rise was born into existence shortly after. We secured our nonprofit status in 2018 and opened our brick and mortar resource center in 2019. After a full year of our resource center being open to the public we have served over 800 individuals and families.
