What we've Accomplished

Fred and Angela Thomas with over forty-five years of law-enforcement and juvenile delinquency background experience. Rise Up 4 Change staff is familiar with teenage vulnerability to violence. Fred and Angela  started out realizing a need to extend their time, knowledge, and skills to reach out and provide services to disadvantaged/homeless youth throughout the community. We self-funded to provide the needed services.

Rise Up 4 Change use social-emotional learning measurements to evaluate key competencies such as empathy, teamwork initiatives, responsibility and problem solving. Recent evaluations indicate that over 94 percent of Rise Up 4 Change students improved in academic performance, overall conduct, and decision-making skills. We started out with one group of 15 to 18 children and now we’re servicing over 1500 children and we’ve expand from South Dade to North Miami.
