Shiri Reuveni-Ullrich

We’re delighted to announce the $5,000 second quarter 2021 Non-Profit Grant recipient. Congratulations to Shiri Reuveni-Ullrich, Founder and President of Rising Above Bakery.

Rising Above Bakery is a bakery in its very early stages but its goal is to provide meaningful employment for individuals with special needs in a community of people that can work together under equal terms.

Reuveni-Ullrich is quoted saying, “Rising Above Bakery is a bakery with a mission. I am a speech therapist by trade, working with individuals with special needs for nearly 20 years. In the last couple of years, I have developed the concept that is now Rising Above Bakery. I have combined my passion of baking and my love of working with individuals with special needs to create a space where we can all blossom together. My hope is that, through our highly functioning model of work and our delicious products, we can demonstrate to the community how valuable we are despite any diagnosis one has.”

With the WomensNet Non-Profit Grant, Reuveni-Ullrich will focus on marketing efforts to drive more traffic.
