In 2014, SPAN Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN), a parent-led and family-centered non-profit parent training and information center (PTI), was funded by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to provide support to individuals with disabilities through the transition from secondary school and into competitive employment and independent living.

RAISE was funded by a national grant from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) to provide technical assistance and support to eight (8) RSA PTIs.
What We Do for Individuals with Disabilities and Their Families

Besides the RSA-PTIs, the RAISE audience includes youth/young adults with disabilities and their families. For them we provide a multitude of resources and information to help them:

-Better understand vocational rehabilitation (VR) and independent living programs and services;
-Communicate more effectively with transition and rehabilitation personnel and other relevant professionals; and
-Understand the provisions of the Rehabilitation Act, particularly provisions relating to employment, supported employment, and independent living.

RAISE also provides these individuals with:

-Follow-up support for transition and employment programs;
-Support and expertise in obtaining information about rehabilitation and independent living programs, services, and appropriate resources;
-Support in the development of the individualized plan for employment.
