My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for RISE INC, Mesa, AZ, USA
Beware and careful check out these people before placing your love one with these People "Rise"!
I found they dime and nickel you to death if you put your son or daughter or love one in day care. I added up one month and left out all their fancying dining out, and it came to $40.00/monthly. They do go and do a lot of actives, but if you don't budget for these actives it may put an additional hardship on already limited income for some of these kids. They told me the kids choose to go to these places like the Olive Garden, Golden Cawcol...I ask them if they really think I beleive these kids all agree of this type of dining without help or is it the care providers that want to eat out really?
They have big turn overs of caregivers, if you have a kid that is sensitive as ours was and the people that were their care providers left for new jobs, cause a drift in that they didn't write down the speical needs of some of these kids to help the next new caregiver, not at all as far as I know.....and left these kids to have to start over and some can't handle change without some type of support or knowledge. When this happens to your kid, what does this do to their behavior or ? I found out the hard way that my Kid didn't want to go back he was afaird of this other kid!! The old caregiver knew and kept them apart along with several other kids that had simular problems as ours. There was a few more kids that didn't get along with this one kid.....except the caregiver had move away and no one wrote down this problem. My kid day after day refuse to go even tho he wanted to, even got dress to go on his bus...at the last min. after the bus arrive he refuse to go?! I didn't know at first why he was so upset...but when I talk to the ever changing bus driver's I found out his caregiver no longer work there...and this other kid was brothering him once again. It took a little while to fig out why our kid didn't want to go back to Rise servicce INC. YOU WOULD HOPE THEY KEPT RECORDS ON THIS SINCE IT WASN'T JUST MY KID WAS UPSET IT WAS OTHER KIDS THAT HAD A PROBLEM WITH THIS OTHER KID?
So I ask for my son to be release from Rise services which shouldn't be a big deal, yet it was...I gave them a 30 day notice and with a meeting too, they refuse to let my kid go?????? Before that we met with my son's DDD person...and talk with her on the phone twice. So this wasn't something that was right now....it took a while to get to this point.
I'M NOW SUSPECT THERE IS MORE TO THE EYE THEN GIVING THESE KIDS CARE.
I FEEL IT IS ABOUT MONEY!!!! UNFORTUNATE HERE IN AZ DDD CAN TELL US AS THEY HAVE IT'S UP TO RAIS!!! WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND FOR THE YEARS WE BEEN GETTING SERVICES FOR OUR KID NEVER RAN INTO THIS TYPE OF GRAB YOUR KID FROM ANY PROGRAM.
I KNOW RAIS HAS FOSTER CARE HOMES, GROUP HOMES, AND HOME CARE ETC.
SO ALL I CAN TAKE IT'S ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY CAN GET FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, OR?
WHAT????? SO I BEEN GOING THRU WITH MY NATUREAL BORN KID and ME, HIS MOM, TO GET GARDENDSHIP SO I CAN FINALLY TELL DDD AND RISE TO LET GO OF MY SON'S HOURS SO I CAN MOVE HIM TO A DIFFERENT PROGRAM....
ALL THE YEARS MY KID HAS BEEN IN DIFFERENT SERVICES THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I FEEL I NEED TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY AND TAKE THESE SUPPOSE TO BE NON PROFIT ORG. TO COURT.
I HAVE READ THE RULES AND LAWS FOR ARIZONA sec 5507 and a few moreLaws, AND I FEEL I HAVE DONE THE WAITING FOR 30DAYS ETC.
I HAVE NO CHOICE LEFT THEN TO DO THIS FOR MY SON. AS I SAID ABOVE....OR KEEP GOING HIGHER IN DDD/DES TO TAKE CARE OF THE RELEASING OF MY KID'S HOURS.
WHAT IS SO HARD WHICH NEVER HAS BEEN BEFORE?????
SO i'm warning parents, GUARDENS etc. to look at who what and why they want your child?
When I ask this THIS person who is suppervisor over all the caregivers why he couldn't tell me??? His face was so tense that you could see him grinding on his own teeth...why???
I am going to not rest until this and all people working for Rise understands a mother is never going to stop wanting to know why? And how dare they think they are GOD and can just say no? NEVER in my life have I had such a problem!!!!! RUDE ON TOP AS WELL AS BREAKING THE LAW.
I hope they will see the wave ward of these actions and fire and let go this employee who has gotten to much power.
By the way they have gotten into our personal life so much so in the middle of my divorce with my husband who is very abusive, etc. they have taken sides when Rise is suppose to be not in our personal lives!! Neither is DDD...but they have broken this rule!!!
And to help my husband hurt me and my kid and stomp on our rights under section 504 as well...
I hope they know I won't let them hurt my kid or myself..without a fight.
Sorry but the story is too long to write all here......
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
fire the suppervisor that is saying no and have more open conversations with both parents and care givers and guardians etc. Always stay out of personal lives of the family and don't take sides.....
