Our Program

SUPPORT HUMAN POTENTIAL

Back on My Feet is not organization but a family that has believed in me and provided me with respect, encouragement and support even when I have not believed in myself. Through their workshops, generosity, and caring they have lifted my spirit, given me motivation, taught me the importance of teamwork and family and most importantly they have continued to stand my by my side.

 ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

Where labels don’t define human potential.

“Homelessness” does not define our members. We know that an experience does not define a life.

At Back on My Feet, we look beyond the label to see the person, to see the potential every single member possesses — and we help them harness it.

We work with members at transitional homeless shelters and addiction treatment facilities in 13 cities across the US. Members’ participation begins with a commitment to run or walk with volunteers and staff three days a week in the early morning. After 30 days and 90% attendance, members move into Next Steps, our workforce development program, which provides educational support, job training programs, employment partnership referrals and housing resources.

The end goal? Helping our members achieve sustainable employment and stable housing.

In our workforce development workshops, members are educated in resume building, job hunting, financial literacy, and other valuable skills that lead to long-term independence and stability.
