"As a child I volunteered to help those in need: As an adult I've given my professional services and monetary gifts to those in need..."
Everyone deserves a second chance and some a third and fourth opportunity. After the passing of her mother in 2009 iRiS has made it a mission to give to those in need monthly,quarterly, and annually. Men, women, and children who are in transition homes, being treated and recovering from cancer, addictions and those re-entering the workforce or fulfilling entrepreneur dreams. 2017 marked the beginning of a new era of giving for iRiS. She established the OMB Families in Transition Scholarship and The Brady Richardson Scholarship and gave the first scholarships at the annual InPowerMeant Summit 2017.
OMB Families in Transition Scholarship is a scholarship helping families in transitions, due to loosing income, home, or other devastating events. We also give clothing and home furnishing to families in need. iRiS's mother had a passion for helping families. In her tradition iRiS is carrying her dream forward.
The Brady Richardson Scholarship is a fund for business men and women who are in need of a little assistance during times of growth and expansion. Brady Richardson a professional business man, accountant, and financial advisor was apart of our first InPowerMeant Summit. Brady unexpectedly died less than a year after being a vital participant InPowering the community with us. In memory of his years of financial contribution in the community at large we named this scholarship in his honor.
