RAISE Florida Network Leadership Committee

The RAISE Florida Network Leadership Committee consists of a diverse coalition with representation from community organizations, HBCUs, urban and rural community leadership, micro businesses, for-profit and non-profits organizations. With years of experience and relationships in the communities served, the over arching focus is to provide solutions for building economic security over a lifetime for low income communities of promise. The goals are ambitious but the hopes, values, social influences and emotional benefits of achieving these goals are foundational in establishing stable communities with bright futures.
