Orlando, FL (November 19, 2018) – The Blake Bortles Foundation (BB5 Foundation) is excited to announce recent support and partnership with Inspire of Central Florida. The BB5 Foundation will provide additional support and community awareness to Inspire’s purpose to provide employment opportunities and life skills training for adults with developmental disabilities in Central Florida.
“We are thrilled to have the support of the Blake Bortles Foundation and look forward to a long future with the organization,” commented Inspire of Central Florida Executive Director, Stephanie Ryan. “We feel the mission of the Foundation is closely aligned with that of Inspire, our staff and clients, which further makes this partnership one that will help us succeed for years to come.”
The BB5 Foundation was originally founded to provide support to two specific areas of need, one being individual and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The specific area is one that holds close to the Jacksonville Jaguars QB’s heart from his longtime friendship with CJ Williams of his hometown in Oviedo, FL. The BB5 Foundation has been partners with the Arc of Jacksonville for the last three years providing over fifteen scholarships for the group’s Summer Life Program, a facility similar to Inspire’s community impact in the Central Florida area.
The BB5 Foundation is committed to working with Inspire of Central Florida as they strive to help their clients to be independent and productive in their learning and work efforts. Since their inception in 1980, Inspire has been able to provide a safe and compassionate environment while delivering exceptional services to the business community and the BB5 Foundation looks forward to contributing to their continued success.
