Rape Intervention Services and Education (RISE) program of Sullivan County advocates for anyone who is or has been a survivor of sexual abuse. Founded in 1987, RISE provides an array of services to survivors of sexual abuse and offers prevention education, advocacy and assistance to survivors, and accompanies them to the hospital, police or district attorney after an incident. RISE also offers confidential individual, family or couples counseling, as well as, support groups and professional training sessions. Through education advocacy, RISE seeks to increase awareness of sexual assault, encourage support for survivors, and prevent sex crimes in our community. Our staff creates a safe, supportive and confidential environment where survivors of any race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, class or sexual orientation are welcomed and supported. The program maintains a 24-hour crisis hotline number, which is 845-791-9595.
