IS RISE MORE THAN A NEWSPAPER?
Yes. RISE is published by RISE Up News, the nonprofit, which is also working hard to partner with local organizations to do more programming in the community, like Right at Release and pre-arrest diversion options.
How often is the paper distributed?
RISE is printed and distributed 10 times a year, about every five weeks.
Who gets copies of rise?
People staying at one of our affiliated correctional facilities get the first copies of RISE. The remaining papers are distributed to various locations around the city.
What correctional facilities do you distribute to?
Currently, RISE is distributed in the Montgomery County Jail, Hamilton County Justice Center, Kenton County Detention Center, River City, Clermont County (CASC Program) and Talbert House: Turning Point and Reading Road Corrections.
What information is included in each issue?
Each issue of RISE includes a county resource guide, informative articles, empowering stories of recovery, inmate-submitted writing and art, an interactive corner, jokes, games and contact information.
RISE DOESN'T HAVE A RESOURCE GUIDE FOR MY CITY YET. HOW DO I FIND RE-ENTRY SERVICES?
Every county should have a reentry office who can link you to the type of resources you're looking for. Do a quick Google search and see if you have a local re-entry office, ask probation and parol officers and contact local drug treatment providers. These organizations tend to have re-entry information for a variety of needs. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any specific questions.
HOW CAN I GET RISE DISTRIBUTED IN MY COUNTY'S JAILS AND CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us where you are located. Once a resource guide is established for your county, we can go over the details of printing and distributing. Our goal is to be in every jail across the country, but, ultimately, your county has to approve RISE distribution inside any correctional facility.
