RISE, Inc. was founded in the fall of 1965 as the Community Sheltered Workshop of Steuben County, a non-profit rehabilitation facility to serve post-school age individuals with disabilities. Enrollment the first year was six mentally retarded adults. The workshop was located in one room in the basement of Pleasant Lake School.
In 1967, a building on the main street in Pleasant Lake was purchased to house the workshop. Jobs from area industries provided some individuals with their first ever paycheck. Over the next 6 years, the population of the workshop increased to 40 adults and included those with handicapping conditions other than mental retardation. A preschool was started in 1970 and served children ages 2 through 6.
