Family Rise Together

Micro-Enterprise + CM Solutions


CM Solutions is a deliberate, thoughtful expansion grown out of Family Rise Together. CM Solutions enables us to focus our Micro-Enterprise programing on outreach and support for the BIPOC entrepreneur. In partnership with CM Solutions, our Micro-Enterprise program provides entrepreneurial technical assistance, access to capital, a peer network support system, referrals, advocacy, and business coaching services. 

We grow economic stability, a vibrant community, and financial independence for under-served BIPOC individuals and families in our region. The entrepreneurs we serve are primarily BIPOC and Communities of Poverty members.


Coming Soon - BIPOC Small Business/Entrepreneurial Center

We are currently working on the development of a BIPOC Small Business/Entrepreneurial Center, located in the Mohaupt Block building in the heart of the Lincoln Park Craft District with retail and production space, programs, and a commercial kitchen. This Center will be our vibrant, aspirational space to create an inspiring system of success for BIPOC small business owners.
