– About Back on My Feet –
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.Operating in 12 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.Since launching in 2007, Back on My Feet has served more than 5,500 individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
