The Inspired Community Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3)* nonprofit serving New York City’s families of children with special needs.
Our mission is to provide early intervention services to children with disabilities, transition support and advocacy coaching for their families, and specialized career training and placement for those working with us.
By ensuring our employment is family-centered, our vendors are local, and our dedication is always to the community around us; everyone leaves us inspired and empowered.
Keeping people first must be a great idea, we were recognized by GreatNonprofits.org as one of their 2021 TOP-RATED Nonprofits!
Our center-based Early Intervention center (Opening September 2022) provides an interdisciplinary approach utilizing current research and best practice of Applied Behavior Analysis, Speech, Occupational, and Play Therapy.
We provide families with transition support and advocacy coaching. Meetings will be held at parent-friendly times, and also recorded for viewing at later dates. Our Parent Portal, securely located on our website, will give 24-hour, one-stop-access to all resources.
Our staff can join us with little experience but through our intensive training curriculum, our classroom staff can leave us as Registered Behavior Technicians® (RBT®). A marketable certification that they can leverage for higher-paying direct service positions; and through our strategic partnerships, we can guarantee them placement.
Our commitment is to keep our vendors local, our partnership community-based, and our impact deeply rooted. We will partner with local Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) to engage in a day of local service, engaging all of our staff in volunteer work for local charities and nonprofit organizations.
We are looking to build community support by creating a TOP Donor model. “Triple Our Pledge” (TOP) model asks individuals not to contribute more of their money, but to engage two of their friends or family members to match their contributions. We want to engage more community members (and raise more money). We are looking to engage only corporate sponsors that share our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We are committed to building and sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable working and learning environment for all students, staff, and families.
There is no programming without representation. Our community is reflected in our leadership. Our students are reflected in our board members, and our families are reflected in our staff.
