Back on My Feet, a national organization operating in 13 major cities across the US, combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources.
Back on My Feet recruits individuals at homeless or addiction and treatment facilities around the country. These individuals – known as members – commit to run three early mornings a week. Goals are set and achieved with one mile becoming two, two becoming three and so on, and after 30 days with 90%, their first milestone: they earn the opportunity to move into Next Steps.
In Next Steps, members work with Back on My Feet program staff to develop a personal road map to independence. Each member attends financial literacy classes and job skills training provided through partnerships with our corporate partners. Members can earn financial aid to remove barriers to employment and housing such as work supplies, transportation and security deposits. Members who achieve employment and housing become Alumni Members.
