Originating from Chicago’s Southside, Christopher M. Edwards served in the military in various capacities for almost 15 years. His service included working as a special education teacher for a decade.
Christopher has always been passionate about creating opportunities that would empower and equip people to live to their fullest potential.
In 2013 he founded BACK ON TRAC, a section 501.c3 non for profit organization. Fulfilling his aspiration to serve people and inspire them to serve others, he has over the years created various initiatives under the banner of BACK ON TRAC.
As the visionary of HER Salute, the initiative was birthed with similar intentions to provide safe accommodation for women veterans and their children while encouraging them to become self-sufficient and equipped to re-enter society. The programs made available to the women will reposition them to make this a reality. One of the most significant features of the initiative is that each woman will receive mentorship and assistance to become a homeowner.

We look to provide mentorship, education, therapy, low-cost housing and training in designated areas of the city to young adults and homeless women veteran (or threat of being homeless) of varying backgrounds and statuses.
We are accomplishing this by developing partnerships to provide the other essential needs of the targeted demographic. We will utilize our website and other social media channels to provide facts, statistics, and other related data on causes, current efforts and solutions to eradicating young adult homelessness, lack of educational training, and workforce preparation.
