Mission Statement

Back on My Feet is a non-profit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of Philadelphia's homeless population by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.

Description

Back on My Feet envisions a community where all members have the support and motivation required to move towards self -sufficiency. Every major city has a homeless problem and while providing food and shelter are important basic needs, something is missing. Back on My Feet is a strategic and creative program that uses running to teach important life skills, such as discipline, respect, leadership, and goal-setting. We work with shelters and rescue mission to guide our members down a road of happiness, hope and opportunity, which includes a stable job and a place to live. This is our goal and we will get there one step at a time.
