Community Unity is a coalition of four established organizations in Sullivan County: RISE, Federation for the Homeless, the Recovery Center and the Dream Tank. The organizations are small, in the trenches, dynamic and, except for the Recovery Center, volunteer driven.
Last year the Federation for the Homeless served 38,000 hot meals and another 44,000 take home meals at the soup kitchen in Monticello.
RISE, the only sexual assault survivor advocacy organization in Sullivan County, advocates for survivors, meets them at the hospital, accompanies them to the police stations and court houses, offers confidential counseling and goes into the schools to offer counseling there, a necessity given that 80% of the survivors seen by RISE are under the age of 18.
The Dream Tank offers an alternative to gangs and unhealthy influences. It has received kudos from the Monticello Police Department and the Monticello Central Schools for their work with young men between the ages of 13 and 25.
The Recovery Center is a long-standing drug and alcohol rehab facility in Sullivan County.
Individually, these organizations provide meals, housing, intervention, prevention, education, treatment, counseling, support and advocacy to the most vulnerable of our neighbors. Every penny raised stays in Sullivan County. Help out your neighbors and have a great evening, too!
