In light of the recent political turmoil and uncertainty at the federal and state levels of government, we at Inspiration Corporation are reaffirming our commitment to serving Chicagoans who have too often been left behind by society and are most in need.  Inspiration Corporation was founded on the idea that every human being – regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, lawful alien status, disability, sexual orientation, and housing status – deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

Our founder, Lisa Nigro, envisioned a community where people from all different backgrounds and walks of life could come together, sit down, and share a meal. In this spirit of dignity and respect, we will continue to stand in solidarity with our fellow Chicagoans as they work toward a better future for themselves and their families. Hate has no home here at Inspiration Corporation, and we will not tolerate discrimination of any kind.

While we are unsure of what the future holds, we know that our work and thework of our fellow social service agencies is more important now than ever.
