Rodney, a paraplegic wheel chair dancer tells a heart felt story of his struggle out of homelessness through an innovative idea that is transforming the way we help people experiencing poverty.
We spent a few amazing days with Rodney, a paraplegic dancer who became homeless after getting laid off from his dance troop. He tells an amazing personal story of getting back up on his ‘wheels,’ which he couldn’t have done without the help and support of his dance community. Rodney articulates how these connections were made possible by an innovative new platform created by HandUp.
HandUp is gaining tremendous traction and this film was employed to create education and exposure to help this model spread across some of the biggest cities in the US. The vision is to eradicate homelessness.
