Inspire’s Heroes in Action Fundraiser
INSPIRE mentors and trains former foster and homeless youth to become self-sufficient, responsible adults and to make positive life choices through the pursuit of higher education.
INSPIRE believes education is the key to breaking the cycle of abuse and povety in families. By providing these services, INSPIRE seeks to assist these youth in overcoming their past and gain the skills and support needed to choose a positive and rewarding future.
Our youth attend college or vocational school full time and work part time while provided with safe and stable housing in a community setting. They are charged a nominal rent per month to help teach self-sufficiency. They receive personal mentoring, professional counseling, life skills training, employment and educational support.
INSPIRE has served over 50 former foster youth since 2005. Of those 50, 93% attended college and 82% gained employment while in the program. Many youth have completed degrees or vocational programs with the assistance of Inspire. What began as one home has now become six – with more planned for the future.
INSPIRE invites you to the Marriott Riverside, at the Convention Center, located at 3400 Market Street, in Riverside, on Saturday, September 9, 2017, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., for an evening of inspirational personal stories, dinner, and fundraising so they can continue their mission.
Tickets are $85.00 per person and $750.00 for a table of 10. Tickets can be purchased through their website www.inspirelifeskills.org.
