January 2016 – Twin Cities R!SE

“Building careers. Empowering lives. Ending poverty.”

Throughout the entire month of January, your generous donation will help individuals in poverty on the path to stable and long-term stable employment. Help us provide education – simply “Round It Up!”

With more than 21 years of success, Twin Cities R!SE is a national non-profit leader in employment programming.

Twin Cities R!SE began in 1993 when founder, Steve Rothschild, former executive Vice President at General Mills, was motivated to find a solution to the poverty experienced by many people of color in the Twin Cities.

“For every $1 invested in our program by the state, we return more than $7 to Minnesota taxpayers.”

Through work skills training courses, internship opportunities, job search assistance, and one-on-one coaching, Twin Cities R!SE works with program participants to find meaningful employment. TCR’s 10 week training programs are designed to strengthen the skills a participant already possesses and train new skills required for industries that are hiring now!

81% of TCR’s graduates stay in their jobs after one year and their 12-month job retention rates are nearly twice the national average.

You can learn more about their services and their program successes on their website HERE.


CRAVE has been a longtime advocate of supporting the communities we serve. From our CRAVE Cares program to participating in nonprofit events, striving to better serve our community is at the core of our mission. We take pride in our natural propensity to give back.
