In an atmosphere of dignity and respect, Inspiration Corporation helps people affected by homelessness and poverty to improve their lives and increase self sufficiency through the provision of social services, employment training and housing. Established in 1989, Inspiration Corporation is a Chicago-based, citywide nonprofit organization. Each year, Inspiration Corporation assists more than 1,600 individuals who are chronically homeless, unemployed or underemployed, and struggling with mental illness, substance use disorders and social isolation. What began as a small red wagon filled with sandwiches and coffee has developed into an award-winning organization offering a comprehensive array of programs. A hallmark of Inspiration Corporation's work is respect for the people we serve. We invite volunteers and supporters to join us in maintaining a community in which individuals can find the resources they need to rebuild their lives with dignity.
