Back on My Feet combats homelessness through the power of community and employment resources. Members develop greater confidence and become part of a positive community by joining volunteers on walks/runs and then leverage these soft-skills and confidence developed in the Next Steps Workforce Development Program, working with staff 1-on-1 to upskill and prepare for the workforce and gain employment. BoMF’s person-centered approach gives individuals experiencing homelessness access to opportunities and tools needed for sustainable independence.

We will increase our impact on the population experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County in moving them toward self-sufficiency, by reconnecting them with their community and guiding them in obtaining sustainable employment. We provide workforce development opportunities that deepen existing abilities and provide new skills to our members, which increases their chances for employment and helps each reach his/her/their full potential. Our current success can easily be built upon with additional resources and funding.
