Welcome to Marva Schodel's Page
Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to me, and I'll appreciate all the support I can get!
Your contribution ensures that a person experiencing homelessness have access to the kind of intensive, wrap-around support they need to move from the streets into a new home.
The Back on My Feet organization uses running and community to motivate and support individuals every step of the way from homelessness to independence. Back on My Feet recruits members (individuals experiencing homelessness) at homeless and residential facilities around the country and begins with a commitment to run three days a week in the early morning. After 30 days in the program, members with 90% attendance earn the opportunity to move into the second phase of the program called Next Steps, which provides educational support, job training programs, employment partnership referrals and housing resources. Almost 80% of individuals who start the program move into Next Steps. For more information about the Back on My Feet organization, feel free to visit their website http://www.backonmyfeet.org/mission-vision.
I have also committed my time to volunteer on the morning runs at 5:30 am every other day in the hopes to motivate and support those who need help in making that first step.
Together we can make a difference. Thank you for supporting our effort to end homelessness.
Best - Marva
