Back on My Feet recruits members at homeless and residential facilities across the country and begins with a member's commitment to run three days a week in the early morning. After 30 days in the program, members with 90% attendance earn the opportunity to move into the second phase of the program called Next Steps, which provides education, employment and housing opportunities.
Our members don’t accomplish this regimen alone. They do it alongside the support of volunteer runners like you.
What’s the Commitment? Volunteers meet in the early morning, 5:30AM, at one of our locations and run between one and four miles with our members. Back on My Feet sees different physical abilities among members so we encourage all runners, joggers and walkers to become a part of our growing community. We run every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but the desired volunteer commitment is once a week. If you fall in love with the team (which, we think you will) then join us as often as you'd like.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About BACK ON MY FEET BALTIMORE
1017 E. Baltimore St., Baltimore, MD 21202, 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.
We'll work with your schedule.
