Our Mission

We empower people to achieve economic independence through fitness and community.

  • Who We Help: We work with people experiencing homelessness or addiction who currently reside within shelters and recovery facilities.
  • How It Works: We run and walk 2-3 times a week to build a sense of community and responsibility. With the support of workforce development, our members can work toward sustainable employment and self-sufficiency.
How it Works

Overcoming Homelessness & Addiction

Operating in 16 cities nationwide, Back on My Feet has been breaking cycles of poverty and addiction across the country. We believe long-term transformation can happen, but it needs a new approach, one that combines community and accountability to achieve economic stability.

Lifelong Support

From the day members join us from a homeless shelter or rehabilitation facility to the day they graduate, the Back on My Feet community is there to offer support and resources. Our members begin their journey by committing to run or walk 2-3 days a week and receive access to workshops, personalized support, and a one-on-one mentor.

It is our honor to guide and cheer our members on as they not only start their careers, but also build their credit, purchase homes, and reunite with their families.
