|Mission Statement: Back on My Feet is a national for-purpose 501(c)3 organization that uses running to help those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real change in their lives that results in employment and independent living.|
Philosophy: 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.
Our Vision: Back on My Feet envisions a community where all member have the support and motivation required to move towards self-sufficiency. Every major city has a homeless problem and while providing food and shelter are very important basic needs, something is missing. We work to rebuild, revive and re-energize individuals. It is only when we have the self-respect, self-confidence that we are truly able to move forward. Back on My Feet focuses on helping our members find a road of happiness, hope and opportunity, which includes a stable job and a place to live. This is our goal and we will get there one step at a time.
It costs $1,800 per member to fund the opportunities Back on My Feet offers, an amount which includes gear, event/race fees and grant money. Back on My Feet is grateful to all those who contribute to the diverse funding streams that allow the organization to grow and serve more members.
Thank you in advance for your consideration of helping us achieve our goal.
