The COVID-19 pandemic has presented new challenges for people in recovery and the frontline staff that supports them daily. This joint investment from the City of Boston and RIZE Massachusetts Foundation will allow us to directly help residential recovery programs support their frontline staff, as well as aid individuals still struggling on the street by promoting hygiene and connection to harm reduction and recovery services while promoting physical distancing.

Martin J. Walsh

Mayor of Boston

The purpose of this grant lands exactly on all of the current complicated spots right now; staffing, tech, cleaning, etc. We appreciate strong, thoughtful partners like RIZE Massachusetts and the ity of Boston. We couldn’t begin to do what we’re trying to do without you.

Sarah Porter

Executive Director of Victory Programs

…because of RIZE Massachusetts’ generosity and leadership we were able to secure additional funds from private foundations that learned of our efforts. Also, we have been in communication with other nonprofits that support sober homes to ensure the resources are spread across several operators to assist their efforts to remain viable. This effort has pushed MA DPH to seek ways to continue the work started with RIZE funding. We thank you for your commitment to supporting individuals in their recovery.
