The similarity in our shared vision of inclusion for people with disabilities within our larger communities is remarkable.

At Aspire, our incredible team has stepped up to ensure the people we protect every day stay safe. We’ve been making adjustments to our operations, including some of the SOARR programs and keeping those with disabilities we support at home in our 24 community homes. We haven’t stopped – and won’t stop – ensuring we do all we can to keep everyone safe.

Friends, now more than ever, we need your help.
Some of our services may be limited right now, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped. We’re pull together to meet important, day-to-day, essential needs. Our community homes are still a 24/7 operation, and our incredible staff members continue to care for the people we support who are depending on us more than ever.

We recognize that many people are hurting right now. And believe a community that bands together can weather the uncertainties. If you are able and willing to lend a hand, please consider the following ways you can help:

DONATE to our Aspire Response Fund. Any amount is helpful

These are the times that bring out the best in us. We can rally together – even if it’s virtually – to take care of each other. Our message is one of hope and happiness. Let’s seek the rays of sunlight that bring joy and delight in moments spent with family and friends. If you look for those moments, they’re there.

We’re going to get through this together. Stay strong, my friends.
Ever Forward,
Jim Kales, Aspire President and CEO
