RYSE is grateful to Honolulu City Council member Ikaika Anderson and the other members of the Honolulu City Council for its recognition of RYSE. The proclamation issued on January 30, 2019 cited the groundbreaking “first-of-its-kind” shelter and services being provided by RYSE. In addition, the council honored RYSE for “helping our homeless youth in need, honors their service to improving homeless youth conditions, and extends its aloha and best wishes for continued success in all future endeavors.”

RYSE appreciates the many contributors to helping our young people achieve self-sufficiency and are thankful to be part of a community that understands the importance of investing in our youth.
