Rising Passions Resource Center is a new non-profit, 501 (c) (3), that seeks to reduce the burden of poverty by connecting people and resources, with a main focus on helping U.S. Veterans. There are many parts to Rising Passions, but they all meet the criteria of helping people find support towards their goals.

We have already been working in the Des Moines Metro Communities helping  people get the resources they need. Our main focus has been working with U.S. Veterans, local food pantries and helping connect resources to those who are in transition.

Our next step is creating a 'one stop' community center and living complex for U.S. Veterans that are struggling to find work, healthcare and resources to integrate back into the workforce. 

There is no economic criteria for becoming a client at Rising Passions. The target groups are those transitioning out of poverty, and those beginning to transition into poverty, but not yet qualifying for certain types of support. However, any person who believes they would benefit from involvement with Rising Passions, and is committed to working towards their success, is welcome.

The core of Rising Passions is to help clients work towards a professional development goal, while providing economic support in the area of bill-paying, transportation, food, healthcare, etc. This will include many working departments, supervisors who will form mentoring relationships with clients, and co-volunteers who act as peer support. The organization will also have coaches and counselors on site, since emotional, relational, and mental health is a vital part of development.

This is a new Organization with big Goals and Awesome Dreams. We need YOU to help make those goals and dreams possible. Any donation big or small will help to make Rising Passions Resource Center more of a success than it already is. You can donate through the link on this site or send donations to Rising Passions Resource Center, PO Box 204, Waukee, IA 50263. 

Thank you, 

Jolene, Jeremy and Kevin

(current board members, volunteers and creators of Rising Passions Resource Center)
