Mission

RunningWorks uses sport to empower individuals and families to break cycles of abuse, abandonment, neglect, poverty and homelessness one stride at a time by creating a safe haven for more than 150 men, women, and children served weekly: a team and family where they can learn to trust.

Vision

Our vision is to stop the destructive cycle of homelessness within a demographic of age five to 70-years-of-age by reaching the most vulnerable and socially excluded in society with values accrued through health and wellness, in this case, running or walking. We believe the lives of many homeless men, women and children have been disrupted by circumstances beyond their control, and we empower them to overcome extraordinary adverse situations.

Values

We are a values-driven, mentorship-based organization that encourages volunteerism as a primary component to rehabilitation as it promotes dignity, a sense of purpose and confidence while team members have fallen on hard times. The discipline, confidence, teamwork, self-respect and respect for others accrued through the passion our team members develop for self-improvement allows them to further their lives for the long term.
