About Us

Kendra Dyson

Executive Director

While serving as program director at Club Christ, Kendra Dyson met dozens of children whom had been in foster care and reunified to their parents. While there were success stories, there were an equal number of children returned to unsafe homes. After becoming a foster parent herself, Kendra developed a passion to educate and equip parents. Her desire to keep kids out of foster care and building healthy home caused her to launch Rise Family Services in 2016.

With a bachelors in Christian Ministry from Hope International University and over 17 years ministry and nonprofit experience, Kendra leads a team of passionate volunteers to serve local families. She has trained with the International Trauma Training Institute and Darkness to Light. When she's not working, Kendra spends time with her husband, Ben, of six years and her three young children.
