Tangible Movement Mission Statement:
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that was formed to inspire, educate and provide tangible support for young adults who struggling with depression, addiction, sexual and gender identity issues and abuse.
About the co-founder Torri Shack:
I've struggled with depression and addiction since I was 14 years old. I have attempted suicide multiple times in my life, as an adolescent and as an adult. I have spent years battling a horrible eating disorder and gender identity issues. At one point I was homeless living out of my car as a result of my depression and addiction.
These last few years I’ve worked hard to put my life back together. My career in the health and wellness field has given me purpose. It’s time for me to pay forward the gift of life that has so freely been given back to me. It’s time to expand my scope and take my efforts worldwide to end the stigma associated with mental illness.
I’ve been sober and abstinent from my eating disorder since 2010. This is the longest period in my life that I have been clean. It is through my personal road to recovery that has led me to form Tangible Movement.

Why this means so much to me:
It has taken me years to come to terms with my addictions, sexuality, depression and abuse. I could not have come as far as I have without a lot of help. Most of the help cost a lot of money which subsequently left me bankrupt and living out of my car. I was homeless battling sobriety because I had spent my last dollar on the cost of treatment and professional help. I want to pay forward what I have received over the years and potentially save lives in the process. Please make a dontation today. -- Torri Shack
