Back on My Feet combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources. 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.

On Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays, volunteers from the community meet with members (those experiencing homelessness or facing other challenges) and gather together for a morning run. You do not need to be an avid runner to join our team; it's really about community. Come be a part of our team!!!
