The Mission of Warm Hands Warm Feet is to provide assistance to low-income and homeless people and families.
The vision of Warm Hands Warm Feet is to be able to help provide individuals with the skills they need to change their situations.
The Idea of Warm Hands Warm Feet came about when I was in college. I was attending Western Michigan University at the time. One day in winter I was taking the train home for the weekend. The train station is in downtown Kalamazoo, where there is a homeless population. As I was sitting waiting for my train, a man walked in and sat down next to me and started taking off his shoes. When he took his shoes off and had on no socks and preceded to wrap news paper around his feet. At that moment I realized some people don't have the basic necessities to live.
