For the month of July, we're excited to again feature Back on My Feet! BoMF is a national organization fighting homelessness in twelve cities, and it all started here in Philadelphia! Back on My Feet combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources. Their unique approach to homelessness recognizes that restoring confidence and self-esteem is the key to a successful future, and running does just that. Since its inception in 2007, Back on My Feet members and volunteers have run over 750,000 miles, have employed and housed 6,500 members, and have helped 83% of their members maintain employment.
