It may be hard to distinguish anyone in the foster system, but the importance of awareness and assistance can go along way.

Help Inspire create opportunities for the youth.

"It only takes one person to believe in you and lead you down a better path." Our Inspire mentors strive to be that person for their student. We held a wonderful mentor training last night on the topic of boundaries. Thank you to all that came out to learn and support one another along this journey.

Thank you to the Trail Maidens for making handwritten letters of encouragement and "Finals Support Packs" for our students. What a sweet way to show our students that many are rooting for them. 💕

Thank you #UCR_Business for another look inside the lives of foster and homeless youth. The #Bus_117 class has been working hard to bring awareness to our cause. #inspirefoster #changinglives #fosterkids #homelessyouth #celebratebirthdays ... See MoreSee Less

Homeless youth don't often experience the joys of their own birthdays. At Inspire, we celebrate who they are and their dreams for the future!
