A BREAK, BE CREATIVE
n important facet of On The Rise’s community is
to provide opportunities for women to take a break from
the crisis of homelessness, focus on their individual strengths,
and engage with other women and staff in ways that are
explicitly not about problems or therapy or charity.
The Wellness Program includes a variety of activities
such as our weekly writing group. There are also regular opportunities for women to get a massage or a hair cut. Staff and women also go on community outings
together to cultural events, the movies, theatre, and local
parks. Some of this summerís activities include a cruise on Boston Harbor, donated by Boston Harbor Cruises, a guided museum tour donated by the Museum of Fine Arts, a trip to the beach, a trip to the movies, and monthly lunch outings donated by Upstairs on the Square.
We are currently looking for:
Do you have a special skill or licensed degree to offer continued wellness services to our program? Please contact Marisa Serrano email@example.com to discuss leading a specialized group at On The Rise.
