Today we want to bring your attention to this new, wonderful, organization in Detroit, called Boots on the Ground. Boots on the Ground is an organization with a mission unlike any other. According to their site, Boots on the Ground hires homeless veterans to “manufacture high quality, ecologically conscious boots and other products that heal communities and strengthen neighborhood resiliency.”
Not only do they hire and give employment to homeless veterans but they help our bravest citizens find the mental health care that they need in order to deal with PTSD and other trauma from war.
We need more companies like Boots on the Ground, and it’s a blessing that they are located in Detroit, Michigan. The Detroit Metro area has 34,642 homeless people and this is unacceptable. Boots on the Ground is making sure that this number doesn’t grow.
Everyone should check out their site and see the great things that they have to offer. It doesn’t hurt that their boots look phenomenal. Expect them to launch for the public to buy at some point in 2016.
