Rising Towards Success, LLC. (RTS), is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the standards of living and communication within our community. With our sister company, Real Talk With Monica, we recognized various needs within our communities other than providing quality entertainment events. RTS was founded in the Fall of 2017, by Founder & Executive Director; focuses on teaching and uplifting our youth and young adults in the study of cultural arts & performances in underprivileged areas and low-income households. In addition, we provide several events within the community to address current social issues that have been plaguing our community for decades. This is done by providing opportunities through community service, neighborhood engagement, and events.

In 2018, we’ve completed two major community events: “Mother and Daughters: Let’s Talk” and “RVA Community Fun Day.” Both events were very well received in the Richmond Metropolitan Area; recognized by local media and scores of positive responses by parents, civic leaders, and local law enforcement. Throughout the year, we participated in domestic violence awareness events, fundraising for school supplies, and wellness/communication activities for local mothers and daughters.

For 2019 and beyond, we look to continue and expand our RVA Community Fun Day program to reach more into the community. To address our housing needs, improve financial literacy, and communication with our civic leaders and law enforcement. We’re currently developing a year-long program that will address the lack of community activities for low-income families. And address the physical fitness of our community; including checking for hypertension, diabetes, and mental health.

More information about the 2nd Annual RVA Community Fun Day will be made available soon.
