On The Rise Bakery is sponsored by the Capuchin Soup Kitchen. This venture is unique in that it is being run by members of the ROPE (Reaching Our Potential Everyday) program.
These are men who have recently been released from prison or have completed a substance abuse treatment program and desire to truly change their lives.
With each purchase of our baked goods, you are helping make possible the provision of supportive housing, training, counseling services, educational opportunities and self-help programs. It is a program where each man is responsible for reaching back and support the newest member. This social entrepreneurship would not have been possible without the tremendous support of so many churches and individuals in the Metro Detroit area.
