Back on My Feet

Run or Walk with Neighbors Recovering from Homelessness

About this Opportunity

Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way society approaches homelessness. We combat homelessness through the power of fitness, community support and essential employment and housing resources. Our unique model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead.

We provide practical training and employment resources for achieving independence, an environment that promotes accountability, and a community that offers compassion and hope. Volunteers serve in a variety of roles:

  • Morning Circle-Up Volunteer
  • Next Steps Mentor
  • Workshop Volunteer
  • Skill Specialist

HFNY Volunteers have typically served as Morning Circle-Up Volunteers. The enthusiasm of our early-rising volunteer runners, walkers, or joggers is contagious as they encourage discipline and healthy habits in people who are going through life transition and transformation.

You can commit to running, jogging, or walking with the team once a week, every other week or every other day. The time is non-negotiable, but the dates & frequency are up to you.
