ASPIRE Group Proud to Sponsor Volleyball for Amethyst Place

by derekespeer

“Every child deserves a safe environment to grow and excel. We all make mistakes, and its important to recognize civic leaders, especially those that help others in their time of need. It’s the least the ASPIRE Group can do to provide some support in form of donation. I’m proud of our group for being so involved in the community.” – Derek Espeer, CEO and founder of ASPIRE Real Estate Group

The Event:

Sunday May 6th beginning at 10 am. at Volleyball Beach (13105 Holmes Rd, Kansas City, Missouri 64145).

More details to come.

About Amethyst Place

The Mission of Amethyst Place is to support women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and their children by providing safe, drug-free housing and individualized services to promote healthy families. We help families overcome significant trauma and develop essential life skills. The Vision of Amethyst Place is that families will successfully transition to drug-free, independent housing and healthy community living.

A mom arriving at Amethyst Place has been chronically homeless. Her meager possessions fit in just a few trash bags. At Amethyst Place, she is offered a fully furnished and decorated apartment with wraparound supports. When she graduates from the program, she can take everything with her.

The success rate at Amethyst Place is 60% – more than double the typical success rate for similar programs throughout the country. The most immediate outcome we observe is how quickly the children stabilize when they have a room they call their own, a bed, food in the kitchen, and a sober mom dedicated to creating a better life for her children. Through these changes in their environment, we see improved educational outcomes, better health, and fewer behavioral problems.
