Welcome to the heart of transformation at Raising The Bar!

Over the years, our unwavering commitment to actively engage with our clients and collaborate with partners has yielded powerful results, positively impacting the lives of families we serve. Since our inception, we've distributed over 1500 toys during the Holiday Season, awarded two scholarships for college, and celebrated the graduation of our first scholarship recipient in 2023, who delivered the commencement speech.

Our reach extends far beyond traditional programming. We've hosted college-led peaceful protests in collaboration with law officials and Faith-Based organizations, organized walk-runs, and donated to women's shelters. Strengthening community bonds, we've forged meaningful partnerships with local foundations, including WE Energies Foundation, Greater Milwaukee Foundation, Bader Philanthropies, and Brewers Foundation.

None of this would be possible without the invaluable support of our donors, who help us expand our reach and impact within the community. Currently operating from three locations, we've reached thousands through a blend of virtual and in-person programming. Join us in making a lasting difference – together, we are raising the bar for transformative change.



Our emphasis is on the holistic development of young individuals, offering programs that empower them to cultivate their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Engaging in workshops within small groups, participants benefit from the guidance of dedicated volunteers who inspire them to enhance self-confidence and acquire essential life skills. Through a blend of interactive lessons and physical activities, our approach is designed to foster a comprehensive growth experience for the youth involved.



Raising The Bar has been an incredible support for my family, especially during the challenging times of the pandemic. Their assistance with providing healthy food options and valuable resources related to mental health and physical well-being made a significant impact. During the Holiday Season, we were pleasantly surprised to receive gift cards for food and help in purchasing toys for our children, bringing joy and relief during a difficult time.

The workshops conducted throughout the year have been a source of inspiration and practical guidance, helping us stay fit and focused on our purpose. Raising The Bar goes beyond the immediate needs and genuinely contributes to the overall well-being of our family. We are immensely grateful for their unwavering commitment to making a positive difference in our lives.

Being a "man's man," vulnerability and seeking support weren't things that came naturally to me. However, attending the Healistry Event was a transformative experience that genuinely changed my life. It was a revelation to recognize that stress, something I had often dismissed, was actually impacting my health significantly.

The event opened my eyes to the importance of acknowledging and addressing mental health, and it dismantled the stereotype that talking to a therapist somehow diminishes one's masculinity. I learned that seeking support is not a sign of weakness but a courageous step toward personal well-being. Healistry provided the understanding and tools I needed to navigate my mental health journey, and I'm grateful for the positive impact it has had on my life.
