Restoring Individuals through Spiritual and Social Empowerment, Inc. (RISSE INC.) is a 501(c) (3) non profit outreach organization of members and volunteers that embraces positive social change. We embrace diversity as a means of unifying, strengthening and empowering individuals as well as communities in the Hampton Roads, VA area.
RISSE was found and organized by Reginald Braxton in March 2017. He has worked with other non profit outreach organizations. He believes that today God has given you and other a second chance to get it right. So " You Are Better Today Than Yesterday." which has become the RISSE motto.
RISSE is about helping the less fortunate; to include our elders that are suffering from sickness and disabilities; our youth that are lacking motivation and positive social skills and others that lack life 's pursuit of joy and happiness.
If we can help and bless one person today then we have accomplished a goal.
