Using Fitness + Community to Disrupt Homelessness

We believe everyone has the potential to transform their lives. At Back on My Feet we harness the power of community and hard work to act as a catalyst for those who are homeless or on the brink of it.

In over 15 cities across the U.S., we use fitness to build community and discipline and, when our members are ready, we move on to educational support, job training programs, employment partnership referrals, and housing resources. We’ve empowered thousands of individuals to overcome obstacles and achieve financial stability starting with the seemingly simple act of putting one foot in front of the other.

We are people helping people, transforming lives one mile, one job, one home at a time.

From Running to Sustainable Employment and Housing

Back on My Feet uses running and community to motivate and support our members every step of the way from homelessness to independence. Our success is measured not only in miles run, but also by how many individuals obtain education, employment, and housing.

01
New Members
Back on My Feet recruits individuals at homeless or addiction and treatment facilities around the country.
02
Circle Ups
Members commit to run 2-3 early mornings a week. Goals are set and achieved with one mile becoming two, two becoming three and so on.
03
Next Steps
Members work with Back on My Feet program staff to develop a personal road map to independence. Each member attends financial literacy classes and job skills training provided through corporate partnerships. Members can earn financial aid to remove barriers to employment and housing such as work supplies, transportation, and security deposits.
04
Lifelong Support
Members who achieve employment and housing graduate to Alumni but remain a valued part of our community and maintain access to continued support.
