National Resources for Advocacy, Independence, Self-determination and Employment (RAISE) Technical Assistance Center



The mission of the RAISE project is to enhance the effectiveness and increase the capacity of the Parent Centers to work with youth and young adults with disabilities and their families to access and benefit from transitions services and supports and to partner with state and local agencies to improve transition systems and services. The RAISE project seeks to achieve this mission through building the capacity of the Regional Rehabilitative Service Administration’s funded Parent Training and information Centers (RSA-PTIs). RAISE’s purpose is to assist individuals with disabilities and their families in achieving their employment and independent living goals.
