“This is the kind of story you would hear on the Oprah Winfrey show, but this is me. This is my life.”

Tyrena’s story is one of tenacious resilience. Between sleeping on trains and moving from shelter to shelter, Tyrena felt defeated and depressed, using alcohol to escape a reality that seemed unimaginable. But she chose to make a change.

No one chooses homelessness. Your gift today makes a difference.

Give others like Tyrena the gift of resilience and endless possibilities.

“I used to be on the train watching people going to work and wondering how anyone could do that — be sober and just go to work every day. And now I’ve been working full time for two years, have gotten a promotion, multiple raises, and bonuses. The idea I would do all of this seemed so farfetched for me when I was under the influence, sleeping on a train.”

— Tyrena, Back on My Feet Alumnus

“From the beginning there was this support, this brother- and sisterhood. Those hugs were the first time I ever knew tolerance. Back on My Feet brought me to a place of victory where I could live my life unapologetically.”

— Dexter, Back on My Feet Alumnus
