The Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, LTD. is Proud to Support Rhode Islanders Sponsoring Education (RISE)
Helping Break the Cycle of Poverty Through RISE On Thursday, May 10, the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini showed their support for the 20th RISE Fashion Show held at Fete Music Hall. Committed to providing educational opportunities for children of incarcerated parents, RISE works with families, community partners, and schools to help end the intergenerational cycle of poverty, addiction, and crime that often follows children into adulthood. Jason R. Resmini, a board member of RISE, works with a team of dedicated staff and other board members to achieve RISE’s mission. Watch this emotional video about the impact RISE has already had for local children.
Resmini/Fenton/O’Brien Scholarship Created by Ronald J. Resmini of the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, LTD.
The Resmini/Fenton/O’Brien Scholarship was created to help promising students from Rhode Island with substantial financial needs attend law school at Suffolk University. Our very own Ronald J. Resmini earned his JD in 1968 from the Suffolk University Law School, and Resmini feels indebted to the personal and professional inspiration former Dean John E. Fenton and John F. X. O’Brien provided him during his time at Suffolk.
Soon after graduating from Suffolk with his JD in 1968, Resmini went on to clerk for Rhode Island Supreme Court Justice William E. Powers before he entered into general practice. Over the course of his career, Resmini has been a prolific author, notable lecturer, and a fellow of the Rhode Island Bar Foundation. It was with a desire to provide others with the same foundational education that Ronald Resmini created the Resmini/Fenton/O’Brien Scholarship.
The Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, LTD. Supports RISE
The entire team at the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, LTD., is excited to be working with the Rhode Islanders Sponsoring Education (RISE) organization. RISE provides mentoring and scholarships to support children with parents who have been incarcerated. By providing motivated students with the financial means to attend a private or parochial high school, RISE is designed to disrupt intergenerational cycles of poverty, addiction, and crime. To further support students who earn scholarships from RISE during their education, each student is paired with a healthy adult who acts as a mentor.
Once students are paired with mentors, the staff at RISE mediates the relationship between the children and their mentors, families, and schools. Beyond the services offered directly by RISE, their team also works to facilitate opportunities for SAT preparation, tutoring, summer programs, and Saturday enrichment activities.
