Program

Back on My Feet starts with a run, but builds to so much more. The community supports members
as they enter into the core of our program, Next Steps, where they can achieve training,
education, employment and housing.

"I’m encouraging these guys every morning, but I think I get just as much out of it as they do."

About Back on My Feet

Our unique model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead. Back on My Feet looks beyond backgrounds and focuses on our shared human experiences: the innate desire to feel recognized and supported, the need for goals and a way to accomplish them. No matter our circumstances, Back on My Feet shows that something as seemingly simple as running can strengthen individuals, build communities and transform lives.

Workforce Development

After members have committed to 30 days of early morning runs with 90% attendance, they earn the opportunity to go into phase two of our program, Next Steps. Here is where our Workforce Development training begins: each member attends financial literacy classes and job skills training provided through partnerships with our corporate partners, better preparing them for the jobs and lives ahead of them.
