About us

Mission Statement

Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national for purpose 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.

Running + Emotional transformation=Education, Jobs and Housing

The organization's mission is not to create runners within the homeless population, but to use running to create self-sufficiency in the lives of those experiencing homelessness. Members have an opportunity to redefine themselves not as homeless, but as hardworking and dedicated runners, friends and teammates. Our program helps Members change the way they see themselves by improving confidence and self-esteem as well as changing the face of homelessness. The program's success is measured by how many Members achieve independence through employment and housing.
