Sometimes life just knocks you down, and you have to pick yourself up and get back on your feet. The Genesco – Helping People Get Back On Their Feet Fund of The Community Foundation makes grants in support of people who are trying to follow a better path in life, and the nonprofits that serve them. The beneficiaries include programs which help people escape the ravages of substance abuse, help people living on the streets find the shelter they deserve, help people return or retrain to enter the workforce, and help people escape the horrors of domestic violence.
