Get iNSPiRED and change children’s lives.


Just a generation ago, there wasn’t a place at most Catholic schools for students diagnosed with Down syndrome, for youngsters on the Autism spectrum or children with other special learning needs. Thanks to generous support from people like you, our schools are able to welcome students who need extra support to learn and thrive. Proceeds from FIRE Ball support our mission of inclusion.

Mark your calendars! 

Upcoming Friends of FIRE (FOF) meetings:

September 25th, 7 PM at FIRE Foundation Office
The Catholic Center
