On My Feet are doing admirable work within the homeless communities within Perth, Sydney and Melbourne. The program aims, through community and corporate support, to provide meaningful opportunities to those in need. How OMF works is they offer a two-step program for individuals that are facing or currently homeless.
OMF collects donations and raises funds through the sale of these high quality running socks, sold for a minimum $10 donation.
The bright colour raises awareness, and the purpose of the socks is to provide active footwear that gives comfort and support – much like what OMF are doing for the homeless.
The program is based on a one month 90% attendance to the training sessions, members receive new running shoes. The second stage is free education program with employment opportunities within the community with graduation. The program instills confidence, self-worth and independence back into these individuals lives. The cost of the two-step program is worth $200 per participant.
