iDARE®, Inc. has been a concept of a grassroot individual involvement to servicing families, children, and communities. For decades, through one woman’s journey whose volunteered in many different areas of outreach programs. Not until after the passing of her beloved father and through decades of difficult challenging circumstances, its concept has been transformed in many ways.

The iDARE concept is based on the notion that by looking through a multi-dimensional mirror from the outside in, you experience a paradigm shift - a new reality, shaped by personal perspective, solidified by pillars of excellence or anchors that hold the structure intact. Therefore, iDARE is intended to signify i-individual daring, and aims to inspire others to live their lives with truth and purpose*.

Ms. Nicky Dare has made her beloved father's dreams of continued serving for others became reality. Her beloved father had donated family funds to start this organization in 2013. Ms. Dare has taken a personal pledge to continue her family tradition in living selflessly to help others in need. The concept of iDARE has finally became a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with its mission to continue servicing charitable, education purposes for families, children, and communities since 2013.
