Assistance League of Capistrano Valley sponsors the I.N.S.P.I.R.E. (Independence for Needy Single Parents Instilled via Responsible Education) Scholarship for Saddleback CalWORKs students. CalWORKs is a welfare to work program for indigent single parents to complete post-secondary education leading to a viable career. Our goal is to provide a helping hand to these parents, change their lives, and provide good role models for their children.
- History of Assistance League of Capistrano Valley and I.N.S.P.I.R.E. In 2014, we started the I.N.S.P.I.R.E. program and sponsored the education of four women at Saddleback College. Since then we have heard many inspirational stories of overcoming physical and sexual abuse, drug addiction, human trafficking and economic hardships. These women have turned their lives around to better themselves while providing for their children. Our scholarship program rewards their hard work while supporting their academic journey.
- Giving Back To Our Community. Since starting the program we have sponsored over 20 deserving I.N.S.P.I.R.E. recipients which have received $71,000 in scholarship funds.
