Rural Communities Rising (RCR) is a multigenerational, female, minority led organization established in the rural Central Valley aimed at cultivating an increased quality of life for rural Californians.

RCR encourages rural Californians to fall in love with their community and invest their talents locally. Believing there is truly no place like home RCR cultivates an increased quality of life via civic engagement, leadership development, and youth programming. RCR currently services rural Fresno County including communities like Mendota, Huron, and Raisin City.
