Moving Home Drives – Making a Home for an On The Rise Woman

Elisa and Marielissa

Each year, On The Rise helps an average of 40 women secure housing of their own. Housing brings
new challenges and new responsibilities for women. With support from our community, we help each
woman get settled in her new apartment by collecting housewares she needs to make her place feel like
home.

Now, during the Covid-19 pandemic, our program participants continue to find housing, at a time
when staying home is more important than ever. This gift directly benefits Elisa and Marielissa, a
mother and daughter living together in the Boston area, in their transition to their own home, a right
that everyone deserves. The colors they would love to see in their home are purple and teal!
Although they will start a new chapter in life, Elisa and Marielissa will continue to remain a part of our
community as new challenges arise and goals are achieved. Thanks to generous people like you, drives
like these allow women to settle in quickly. The retention rate for housed women in the past 5 years is
85% due largely in part by your involvement in helping women make their house a home!
