Rise Calgary builds strength by strategizing with our customers through our empowerment programs. Rise Calgary partners with Calgarians to create and sustain their own strengths circle. The strength loop is where fear moves into gratitude, anxiety calms and moves into peace and where positive outcomes emerge. In the strength loop, Rise helps people get their income paperwork in order, find stable housing and work opportunities, and build financial and social assets. Calgarians can participate in matched-savings programs, and our signature financial and mobility coaching empowerment programs.
