Brown County ARPA Award
“It’s huge, right?" said Robin Scott, Executive Director of We All Rise: African American Resource Center, "We’re serving some of the most marginalized people that have weathered the pandemic, they still have existing housing needs, education needs, economic needs, all those things and this funding will go really far in helping to serve them, getting some of the barriers out of the way so they can show up as their best and most thriving selves."
We are thrilled to announce that We All Rise received an award from Brown County for ARPA Funds. These funds will allow our agency to receive diagnostic tools for our non-billable comprehensive mental health services, support our youth specific supports, and provide emergency funds and crisis supports for survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence and other victimizations.
In addition to receiving our award, we received our award alongside two incredible community partners, Howe Community Resource Center and Golden House! Please read about their vital work and get connected with the links below.
Howe Community Resource Center's Vision: HCRC positively impacts children and their children. HCRC is a strong and collaborative partner in increasing academic success of Howe Elementary School students. We are a part of growing successful children to develop into healthy and productive citizens. HCRC is creative and nimble in responding to Howe School and community needs.
Golden House: Golden House exists to provide help and healing to victims of domestic abuse. We help hundreds of people every year with counseling, advocacy, shelter and other services as our clients begin their journey of healing. Our outreach and education programs reach thousands of students and adults, helping them understand the cycle of violence and the warning signs of domestic abuse.
