Back on My Feet is Bi-Coastal! 

The movement that started in Philadelphia will hit the West Coast in 2013.  Join us in a little celebration (feel free to dance or run in place) as we announce Los Angeles as BoMF’s eleventh US city!  

Back on My Feet Los Angeles is possible with tremendous support from our partners including Accenture, ACE Cash Express, AT&T, Bimbo Bakeries USA, John Hancock, Marriott International and White Lodging. “Back on My Feet is 100 percent privately funded and our organization doesn’t work without our corporate partners as they financially support us, get their employees engaged, and many help to advance our program by training or hiring our Members,” said Anne Mahlum, Founder and CEO.  One of the biggest partners of Back on My Feet Los Angeles is ACE Cash Express, a company that supports our organization financially as well as teaches financial literacy to the BoMF Residential Members in Dallas-Ft. Worth.
