Back on My Feet combats homelessness
through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and
Back on My Feet seeks to
revolutionize the way our society approaches homelessness. Our unique running-based
model demonstrates that if you first
restore confidence, strength, and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped
to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes, and new lives. For all in
need, we aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for
achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community
that offers compassion and hope. For all
with the capacity to serve—volunteers, donors, community and corporate
partners—we seek to engage you in the profound experience of empowering individuals
to achieve what once seemed impossible through the seemingly simple act of
putting one foot in front of the other.
Operating in 11 major cities
coast-to-coast, Back on My Feet uses running and community to motivate and
support individuals every step of the way from homelessness to independence.
Our success is measured not only by the health impact of miles run, but also by
how many individuals obtain education, employment, and housing.
