Over the last several months, we’ve dropped hints about a big change coming to our organization. As you may have heard, we are changing our name and launching a new brand. Effective today, The Institute of Professional Practice, Inc. is now Aspire Living & Learning.
The last several months have tested us all, stretching us in ways we didn’t know possible. COVID-19 has threatened our community and our work, but we continue to rise to the challenges before us. Our employees and the people we support have made significant changes to their daily routines to stay healthy and safe while finding creative ways to laugh and share joy. The support of parents, community partners, and other stakeholders during these uncertain times has provided the agency with strength and hope.
This pandemic has brought into focus and reinforced the importance of relationships. Relationships that allow the people we serve to grow and transform are the essence of who we are as an agency. And these relationships are the cornerstone of the new brand.
For nearly 40 years, Aspire Living & Learning has provided compassionate, person-centered, community-based, evidence-driven support for people with varying abilities. Rooted in a tradition of service innovation, we seek to build strong communities through the transformational work of building relationships and empowering individuals.
We believe that our new name and new brand – Aspire Living & Learning – better reflects this work and the energy behind it.
Today is an exciting day for the agency, and we are so grateful to be on this journey with you. Read our official press release here.
