We've Got Your Back

RISE Working Groups

The RISE Working Groups were created to develop projects that will benefit Happy Camp residents.  One of these lifesaving projects is implementing long-term community resilience, which will better prepare Happy Camp to respond and recover from future disasters.  Because of collaborative efforts the Working Group members accomplish more, utilizing their collective knowledge and experience.  This approach also reduces duplication of efforts and funding.  Below is more information about our five Working Groups.
