  • Mission:
  • Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national nonprofit organization that is dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within homeless and underserved populations by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem. The organization does not provide food or shelter, but instead provides a community that embraces equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership. Through dedication and hard work, members earn the opportunity to create a road to self-sufficiency for themselves by advancing to the "Next Steps" phase of the program where they gain access to educational and vocational training and employment opportunities, as well as financial aid. In short, BoMF focuses on changing the direction of people's lives by changing the way they see themselves.

  • Overview:
  • BoMF is a 6-9 month program that works with individuals living in homeless facilities. Teams of volunteers and residents are formed at partner facilities, where we build soft skills such as goal setting, dedication and confidence in an informal environment. BoMF runs every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5:45 am. After 30 days and 90% attendance at the morning runs, each member moves on to the Next Steps program. Next Steps engages our members in goal setting, enabling them to move towards self-sufficiency through educational and job training opportunities. A workforce development curriculum has been custom crafted for BoMF members to ensure consistent and comprehensive training in all our chapters. Additionally, each member has the opportunity to earn financial aid to help assist the individual in their efforts toward self-sufficiency. The use of financial aid is carefully monitored by our Program Director, and all checks are paid directly to the vendor (school, property complex etc.)

  • History:
  • Founded in Philadelphia in 2007, Back on My Feet (BoMF) was a grassroots movements lead by Anne Mahlum. From the beginning, a key program element included signing a "Dedication Contract." The dedication contract committed to: show up for runs on time; respecting yourself; and supporting teammates. Seven years later, BoMF is now a national movement that helps members move from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
