About Back on My Feet NYC
115 W 29th St, 1100A, New York, NY 10001, US
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.
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. You can read more about our impact here.
The NYC chapter currently has four teams in Times Square, Uptown, East Harlem, LES, and Downtown. When joining our ranks, our members commit to running Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 5:30 to 6:30AM or 5:45 to 6:45AM.
We'll work with your schedule.
