YESRISING FOUNDATION for LOVE, POSSIBILITY + INCLUSIVENESS.
“When I was a teen, I had a dream of creating a shelter, a place available where others like me could go when they felt there was no other safe place. I imagined this facility, a physical building, offering one-day, overnight, or more stays offering compassionate counseling and programming designed to assist teens & the LGBTQ community find safety and freedom of expression. Yesrising supports this dream” – RS
The YESRISING Foundation for Love, Possibility, and Inclusiveness was established in April of 2017 to serve as a vehicle that assists LGBTQ teens, Cancer Survivors, and our Aging Population.
TODAY, The YESRISING FOUNDATION is a modern day vision of that teenage dream with an expanded mission. It is my hope that in the near future, The Foundation will become a 501c3 organization as it grows. Visit our Donation page if you would like to make donation to the mission of the Foundation.
The Yesrising Foundation serves three areas of need:
- Teen LGBTQ, serving those who are bullied, lacking a support system, or are artists needing a helping hand or listening ear. One of my dreams as a young gay man was to establish a shelter for runaway LGBTQ teens complete with mind, body, spirit programs. This is an online version of the program I hope to develop.
- Cancer Survivorship Programs and Cancer Prevention Programs. Close to my heart, I believe we can reduce the suffering for people diagnosed with cancer, and build educational and support systems for patients, and their friends and families – including cancer prevention education.
- Eldercare Environments. I believe our aging population is in need of two things. One, our respect. Two, better environments to live in. There is cutting edge technologies today that I feel will offer our elder communities the future home environments they need.
