Mission and Work


BACK ON MY FEET combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources.


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. BACK ON MY FEET recruits program participants ("members") at homeless shelters and residential facilities around the country and begins with a 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 educational support, job training programs, employment partnership referrals and housing resources. BACK ON MY FEET served over 1,400 members in 2017, 900 of whom became employed and/or housed, with 150 receiving training and education. Since launch, over 5,500 members have become employed and/or housed. Every $1 invested in BACK ON MY FEET returns $2.50 to the local community through economic output from employment and reduction in costs for shelter, medical services, incarceration and addiction treatment.
