Our incredible team has stepped up to ensure the people we support stay safe. We’ve made adjustments to our operations and some services may be limited right now, but we haven’t stopped. We’re still have to meet important, day-to-day, essential needs. Our community homes are 24/7; people are depending on us now more than ever. We must ensure we do all we can to keep everyone safe.
Friends, now more than ever, we need your help. Please consider the following ways you can help:

  1. DONATE to our Aspire Response Fund. Any amount is helpful.
  2. HELP US keep supplies in stock! The supplies most needed are disinfectant wipes, latex and non-latex gloves, and paper products; Kleenex, toilet paper and paper towels. These donations can be dropped off at the Killian Center (3441 Sheridan Rd, Zion) or the Weinberg Career Academy (4110 Litt Dr, Hillside) Mon. or Wed. between 10am – 1pm. Please leave your items inside the first set of doors. Download and fill out this in-kind donation form to include with the donation. Our staff will bring the items inside, distribute to the homes, and send you a donation letter.
  3. MAKE a video: Say hi to those in our homes and post on our Facebook page. Brighten their day!

Our message is one of hope and happiness. Let’s seek and delight in moments spent with family and friends. We’re going to get through this together. Stay strong, my friends.
Jim Kales, Aspire President and CEO
