Brandi Moore, Broken Iron Fitness

Date grant awarded: 04/29/2017

United Hope Housing’s Broken Iron Fitness Program provides physical fitness training as a way to reduce anxiety, depression, and the effects of PTSD in homeless youth ages 18-24 that have spent their lives in the foster care system. We believe that when young people are given the opportunity to get strong physically, they can overcome the transgressions of their childhoods.

Through the volunteerism of personal trainers, powerlifting coaches, and local gyms, we assist those who have aged out of foster care and are searching for positive ways to increase their self esteem, physical health, and rebuilding their young lives.

This year we have several youth who are powerlifting at the National Powerlifting Championships in Las Vegas with a Class 1 total or above.
