Our Mission


We have a simple mission: To reach those in need and teach them self sufficiency. 

Each One, Reach One, Teach One!


Message from our President/CEO

"When I came up with the concept of IRTI, I had in mind an organization that assisted individuals by providing them the ability to better themselves by any means necessary. Change starts within yourself then spreads abroad. If you want to see change, start it, then it will grow and become infectious to others around you!"
