After experiencing much success as a young man, Derrick began abusing alcohol, which led to his incarceration and eventual homelessness. Upon graduating from our job training program in 2014, we were able to help him to continue his education and earn his Certified Drug and Alcohol Counseling certification (CDAC) through our Career Connections program. To learn how Derrick is now helping others, please visit our blog.
One Inspired Evening is Inspiration Corporation's annual fundraising gala that brings together over 400 Chicagoans for a night of celebration, including a juried art auction, silent auction, raffle, catering from Inspiration Kitchens, and live music.
All proceeds from One Inspired Evening go directly to supporting Inspiration Corporation’s mission of helping people who are affected by homelessness and poverty to improve their lives and increase self- sufficiency through the provision of social services, employment training and placement, and housing in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.
