We stand for workers.

We deliver a wide range of exceptional benefits on behalf of labor-management trusts and nonprofits.

Our History

RISE Partnership formed in 2019, when the leadership of three labor-management trusts dedicated to delivering benefits to Oregon homecare and personal support workers made the strategic decision to form a jointly-owned shared services organization.

Through the RISE Partnership, the Oregon Homecare Workers Benefit Trust, Oregon Homecare Workers Supplemental Trust, and the SEIU 503 Training Partnership have been able to maximize trust participants’ experience by focusing integrated benefit delivery and shared administrative infrastructure. Building on this model, RISE Partnership now delivers benefits for five Oregon-based labor-management trusts.
