Transformation and Empowerment
The PIVOT initiative is a part of Back on My Feet, a national for-purpose 501(c)3 organization that uses running to help those experiencing homelessness transform their own lives and achieve employment and independent living. PIVOT forms one more step on the path to personal transformation by offering apprenticeships that teach hands-on skills in refurbishing vintage and discarded furnishings. PIVOT delivers on Back on My Feet’s goal to help individuals experiencing homelessness achieve employment by mastering a craft that requires skill and discipline, and teaches Members to observe, to plan and to act – traits that contribute to success on the path toward self-sufficiency. A structured program that includes introduction to traditional crafts and design principles, PIVOT provides the skills necessary for Members to pursue a career in the art and design industry or to simply work in the allied fields of carpentry, construction and more.
