Many families that Inner Roads serves are not in a place financially to get the help they need. We offer sliding-scale admissions to accommodate families that would otherwise be limited. Donations go towards operations costs and essential outdoor gear, food, and therapeutic services for the youth in our care.
By donating, you will be helping adolescents and their families in their journey from surviving to thriving.
Your donation to our state-licensed 501(c)3 nonprofit organization is tax-deductible, EIN #36-4896780.
"[When] we picked up [our son] at the end of his experience, he was taller, a bit more stinky, and he probably had the biggest smile that I have ever seen on his handsome face. He accomplished something amazing… I notice these changes with him that I know are a direct result of spending time with Inner Roads. He spends times outside, riding his bike and running. He tells me honestly what he thinks. He shares with me how he feels. He challenges me in ways that I know are in an effort to make our relationship better. While we still fight and argue with each other, we are working on it. We are also now fighting for our relationship."
