Board of Directors

ARISE’s success depends on the support and active participation of the people who live and work in the communities we serve. Members of our Board of Directors come from all walks of life, each bringing a unique perspective that contributes to and enriches the quality of the agency. 

As an Independent Living Center, ARISE is run by and for people with disabilities and more than half of our Board of Directors are individuals who have a disability. Their guidance directly influences the agency’s strategic plan, policies, program development and service delivery.  

We are grateful to our community members who commit their personal time to help ARISE operate as a successful Independent Living Center and guide the agency’s growth into the future.
