What is the R.I.S.E. Program?
R.I.S.E. is Skyline Living’s tenant assistance program designed to provide support, access to community resources, and/or financial assistance, when a valued tenant is struggling with hardship.
At Skyline Living, we understand that things don’t always go according to plan.
Sometimes our tenants encounter life challenges that make it difficult to pay the bills or provide basic living needs, causing even more distress.
As a Skyline Living tenant, you’ve chosen to call our building home. To us, you are part of the Skyline Living family, and we want to provide support when you need it the most.
Reaching out to our tenants to create strong communities that can weather disruptive life events.
Mobilize local services, supports, and financial assistance to ensure maximum impact.
Supporting our valued tenants as they overcome difficult life events, demonstrating our commitment to our rental communities.
Breaking the stigma of asking for help and elevating tenants’ spirits through a hard time in their lives.
