Use of Proceeds & Repayment

The proceeds from this loan will provide On The Rise Inc. with working capital to assist with payroll, reduce credit card debt, insurance renewal, and provide start-up funding for the Intensive Services Foster Care component of their program.

This loan is needed to bridge a funding gap that will be resolved when the organization receives payment of the Employee Retention Credit in approximately 9-12 months.

Why Support this Program

This loan will allow OTR to make timely federal tax deposits, renew their insurance policies which are required for their contracts and better serve foster youth that are experiencing severe emotional behaviors through the Intensive Services Foster Care program.

The journey began when On the Rise Inc. was established in 2015 by the Executive Director Kimberly Hammack.

Kimberly Hammack has over 18 years of experience working in social services. Her vision in founding On the Rise Inc. derives from a deep passion for helping children and families. Working in social services for so many years she saw the struggle these children and families face while being in foster care.

With a lot of time, dedication, and hard work, she persisted in her vision of creating a compassionate foster family agency that truly makes these children feel at home. At the end of the day what is most important to On the Rise Inc. is that these children are safe, loved, and placed with families who will help them grow.
