Donate To RISE

In-Kind Donations

Rise accepts some donations of clothing and household goods, as practical items are very useful when our clients are leaving our shelter and establishing new households. Donations are accepted Tuesdays and Thursdays between business hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Rise administration office located at 1201 E. Main Street in Endicott, NY.

What is domestic violence?

Domestic Violence is a pattern of coercive behavior. This pattern can include abuse of various sorts of one family member by another including:

Perpetrators of domestic violence have a goal to establish and maintain power and control over their partners and/or other family members.

This violence affects people in every racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic group and includes people of all ages who have lived together or who have had an intimate relationship.

Domestic violence often escalates in severity and frequency over time and can have serious health and psychological ramifications.
