Formerly known as RISE Equipment Recycling Center (RISE), The Evolve Resale Store & Job Training program (Evolve), is part of COPE Community Services, Inc. (COPE) — a 501(c)3 nonprofit integrated healthcare organization in Tucson, AZ with over 46 years of creating pathways to better health by helping community members improve their quality of life through integrated behavioral, medical, therapy, housing, and employment services.
For over a decade, RISE offered E-waste recycling, computer literacy training, and operated a resale store that was open to the community. For over four decades, COPE has transformed the lives of those in need in Pima County — moving forward, we’re excited to bring the best of RISE, and COPE’s employment program structure, to not only transform products for resale but also the lives of many to increase their wellbeing and make a difference in the community.
The Evolve Resale Store & Job Training program (Evolve), is a 6-week program that builds employment opportunities for adults who are in recovery from mental illness and/or substance misuse.
