Up On My Wheels

**OFFICIAL SELECTION AT THE REEL IMPACT FILM FESTIVAL 2016**

FILM: HandUp is revolutionizing the way we help homeless people. They are using technology to make human connections and it’s having a profound impact on the community.

SOLUTION: 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.

RESULT: 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.
