This dedicated team from Peabody Resident Services, Inc. (PRSI), a division of full service real estate firm Peabody Properties, Inc., is dedicated solely to the development of support services and programs for residents of affordable housing. The walkers, dubbed team “Back on our Feet”, are all employees of PRSI’s Group Adult Foster Care (GAFC) Program, which provides residents with daily services including personal care, housekeeping, laundry, shopping, meals, transportation coordination and case management.
In keeping with PRSI’s commitment to giving back to the community, the Back on our Feet team took to the streets of Boston on Sunday, May 1st and helped raise $900 for Project Bread, which supports in excess of 400 programs in more than 120 communities across Massachusetts. This was PRSI’s fourth time participating in the Walk for Hunger.
