Prommis Solutions, Atlanta, a leading national provider of technology-enabled processing services for the default resolution segment of the real estate finance industry, has announced its participation in the launch of the Atlanta chapter of Back on My Feet, a nonprofit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of those experiencing homelessness by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.
As part of this collaboration, Prommis will be one of the sponsors at the inaugural breakfast event to launch the nonprofit organization’s Atlanta chapter. The breakfast will take place at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis on November 11, 2011 from 8:30-9:30 am EDT.
Back on My Feet is Prommis’ third nonprofit partner. The company also provides ongoing support to Talk About Your Future, Inc., and its Grady Talks program, and to the Alliance for Children Everywhere.
Prommis is also participating in Back on My Feet’s “Sneaker Week,” fundraising initiative, which begins on November 11, 2011. During Sneaker Week, Prommis employees are invited to contribute to the cause by donating $5 and wearing sneakers to work from November 11 through November 18.
Back on My Feet is a 6-9 month program for individuals living in homeless facilities. The organization does not provide food or shelter. Rather, it provides a supportive community where team members can collaborate in moving their lives forward, on an individual as well as a group level. Back on My Feet representatives work to help each individual determine his or her next step in life, which can include job training programs, educational scholarships and housing assistance.
“It’s easy, particularly in challenging markets, to focus on our own difficulties and forget about others that need our help,” said Denis Brosnan, CEO of Prommis Solutions. “Prommis is a services business. We find that our cultural commitment to service and our associated generosity of spirit carries over into our social responsibility initiatives. Therefore, not surprisingly, our community support programs have been wildly popular among our staff. Our collaboration with Back on My Feet is particularly satisfying to me because it gives us an opportunity to help out here in our hometown of Atlanta, while advancing our overarching cultural themes of health, fitness and personal responsibility.”
