Come out and walk / jog and / or run with our members! Go at your own pace.

Back on My Feet helps people experiencing homelessness overcome barriers that can
keep them locked in a perpetual cycle of poverty and homelessness. Chief among them
includes limited job opportunities, lack of affordable housing, medical diagnoses and
substance abuse disorders, former incarceration - as well as systemic racism. We help by
connecting our members to the right workforce development tools, opportunities, and
community to overcome what is impeding their ability to achieve economic stability.


What we do, works. Physical fitness, coupled with community and workforce development
programs have made way for 70% of our members to gain employment and housing, and
83% of those members maintain employment after their formal time with Back on My
Feet has concluded. Our over 150,000 volunteers and supporters have helped us train and
educate over 3,000 people experiencing homelessness and obtain over 7,500 jobs and
homes. And this is only the beginning. Contact us to find out how you can help more than
double our impact.


HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

As a Back on My Feet Volunteer, you’ll not only be
part of revolutionizing the way society perceives
homelessness, you’ll have a chance to be part of a
person’s journey towards self-sufficiency.
By increasing the amount of community member
touchpoints, members not only have more
opportunities to develop both hard and soft skills,
but more opportunities to create meaningful
relationships.
