About Inspiration Corporation
Each year we work with thousands of Chicagoans affected by barriers such as homelessness and poverty.
We meet people where they are in life, helping them achieve their goals by providing social services, job training, housing, and food.
Our Work Last Year
We worked hard during our previous fiscal year (July 2020 to June 2021) to provide a wide variety of services to those experiencing homelessness and poverty in Chicago. Here’s just some of what we accomplished:
in scholarships provided by the Lori Jericho Memorial Education Fund
Households provided with rent support and wraparound services
Job training graduates placed in jobs
Meals served served to community members
Dine Well. Do Good.
We train low-income and homeless Chicagoans for careers in the foodservice industry at Inspiration Kitchens, our social enterprise restaurant in East Garfield Park. Our graduates go on to work at some of the city’s hottest restaurants and catering companies, and have the opportunity to exit poverty for good.
