WHO WE ARE
Established in 2010, Together Assisting People (TAP) is a 501c3 non-profit that was founded by former University of Alabama football standout, Chris Rogers. The mission of the organization is to prepare athletes to be successful in life outside of athletics. TAP develops and institutes programs catered to the unique issues facing youth and young adults as a way to help them find purpose and direction. All of TAP’s programs take a holistic approach to addressing these issues by emphasizing the importance of having a sound mind, body, and soul working as one.
