Easterseals RISE

Angola, Indiana

RISE Inc. has been supporting individuals with disabilities in Steuben and DeKalb Counties since 1965. In 2020, RISE merged with Easterseals Arc of Northeast Indiana and became known as Easterseals RISE.

As part of the Easterseals Arc network, Easterseals RISE has grown and expanded services while remaining committed to local roots. Collaborations that deepen community ties include offering a Pre-Manufacturing Academy with the Steuben County Economic Development Corporation and partnering with Cahoots Coffee Cafe for the Transitions program.

Easterseals RISE opened a new Auburn office in July 2021 to better serve DeKalb County.
