San Francisco, Calif. — October 6, 2012 — Rodan + Fields Prescription for Change (PFC) Foundation (www.rodanandfields.com/Pages/Giving-Back) continues to expand its charity outreach nationally with the announcement of a new partnership with the Chicago-based Inspiration Corporation, an organization dedicated to helping people who are affected by homelessness and poverty improve their lives and increase self-sufficiency. Inspiration Corporation becomes PFC's fifth Partner Center throughout the country.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with this fantastic organization whose mission parallels Rodan + Fields' goal of empowering individuals," said Amnon Rodan, Chairman, Rodan + Fields. "Our business is about helping people create opportunities to change lives. And our foundation is at the core of this mission. This partnership gives us an opportunity to have a positive effect on those living in the Chicago area, a location very near and dear to the hearts of many Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants."
Inspiration Corporation was chosen by Rodan + Fields PFC Foundation because of its alignment with the PFC Foundation's mission. The generous commitment demonstrated by Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants from the Chicago area, who have continued to be some of the largest donors to the PFC Foundation, have helped guide the Foundation in its partner selection.
In an atmosphere of dignity and respect, Inspiration Corporation (www.inspirationcorp.org) helps thousands of people in the Chicago area affected by homelessness and poverty through targeted social services, employment training and placement, and housing. Among other activities, Inspiration Corporation provides meals, supportive services, housing, employment preparation and vocational training-serving as a catalyst for self-reliance. The organization's programs include The Employment Project, Inspiration Kitchens, Inspiration Cafe and the Living Room Cafe.
"Inspiration Corporation is excited to have this opportunity to collaborate with Rodan + Fields," said Shannon Stewart, Executive Director & CEO, Inspiration Corporation. "Its generous financial contribution and continued support will directly help the many individuals we serve to become employed and permanently housed. Together we can truly make a difference."
