INN is actively involved in giving back to the local community of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the communities we serve around the country. Below are a few of the organizations we proudly support as an organization:
The Place Colorado Springs is a shelter and 20 bed facility for youth ages 15 through 20. At the shelter, youth have their basic needs met — from meals to personal hygiene — in a safe environment. Beyond basic needs, youth at the facility receive intensive case management, health services care, and education and employment support, which are all designed to empower each individual youth build toward self-sufficiency based on their identified goals and needs. Youth can also participate in a variety of life skills classes, the bike program, and take part in activities in the community, which range from hiking trips to volunteering.
Global Spine Outreach (GSO) provides spinal surgeries to underprivileged children around the world. They partner and work alongside local physicians to provide treatment to patients who otherwise would not receive care. Together, they correct spinal deformities, remove pain, and often prevent paralysis and extend life. Due to the complex nature of these surgeries, they are also dedicated to collaborating with local physicians and staff training and honoring sustainable continuing care.
Junior Achievement (JA) is headquartered in Colorado Springs and provides strategic direction, leadership, and support to approximately 1,500 employees throughout the country. Its purpose has been to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise and understand business and economics to improve the quality of their lives. JA reaches more than 4.6 million students per year in over 200,000 classrooms and after-school locations across the US.

Finding Refuge was started in 2010 by a group of students from Semester at Sea, after an inspiring visit to the nonprofit City of Refuge in Ghana. The City of Refuge is an organization that rescues child slaves from the Lake Volta region. The faces and stories of the children at the City of Refuge moved us to create Finding Refuge, a 501c3, which exists to support City of Refuge in their quest to put an end to child slavery in Ghana. In the words of City of Refuge’s logo, we exist to motivate, educate, and liberate.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital leads the way in how the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. IntraNerve has participated in the Cubano Golf Classic to benefit the Colorado division of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In 2019, $7,700 was raised at the tournament.
