This is a place for news, updates and trends about Back on My Feet and its mission of combating homelessness.
Back on My Feet is a nonprofit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of people experiencing homelessness by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.
Back on My Feet does not provide food nor does it provide shelter, but instead provides a community that embraces equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership. There are no labels, no stigmas and no stereotypes. At Back on My Feet, all members – regardless of race, education or socioeconomic status – join together to move their own lives forward as well as the lives of their teammates.
We currently have chapters in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Boston and Chicago, Dallas Fort-Worth, Indianapolis, Atlanta and will launch in New York City on April 10, 2012. Read more about us here.
