In 2019, our founder started Inspired By U, traveling abroad and bring services to communities surrounding healing from trauma. In 2020, during the height of Covid-19 it was evident that these services were needed, especially in the urban areas where counseling and mental health services are not always accessible or affordable. Inspiring You was formed in 2021 to be a community based non-profit organization that will provide programming to these individuals through programs that focus on the ARTS and continuous case management.
Being a former advocate with the local rape crises center, Santeresa also understands how sometimes doing the work can be triggering, so we added a component of our program solely for the Crises Workers / Volunteers.
To bring trauma informed care to the underprivileged, black and brown, lgbtqia2s+, urban communities, and abroad. Focusing on using the arts to overcome trauma.
We also, understand that the work of the Crises worker can be stressful and sometimes triggering. We will be a supportive branch to those who work in Crises.
