Back On My Feet has found a uniquely profound way to give back to the community by aiding those who have been displaced from their homes in a way that encourages the individuals through participation in their recovery instead of providing a simple hand-out. Through commitment, coaching, encouragement, and participation Back On My Feet opens doors for individuals who simply need a chance to prove themselves. A small but powerful force for good and very focused.
