The first step: commitment. The program recruits members at homeless and residential facilities to commit to a morning run with staff and volunteers, three days a week. Once a member achieves 90% attendance over 30 days, Back on My Feet helps them develop a personal roadmap to independence—promoting their personal and professional development with career readiness, financial literacy, and skills training courses. They also work with partner organizations to help members find housing.
The program’s success lies in the routine and relationships built from a simple, consistent morning run—helping members regain a sense of normalcy and build hope for the future. With over 5000 members helped to date, Back on My Feet is going the distance to end homelessness.
