“Since my law school clinical work in homeless shelters, I have been on the lookout for innovative, and effective ways of addressing the complexities of homelessness. Back on My Feet is just that! Back on My Feet adds a new and much-needed dimension to traditional homelessness recovery services by helping restore individuals’ sense of self and community. I am honored to serve the mission of BoMF and am motivated and uplifted every day by our incredible members and supporters.”
Nikia manages many efforts for the Baltimore chapter of Back on My Feet, her most fullfilling being the one that allows her to assist the residential members in deciding what the “next steps” in their lives will be and encouraging her teammates to do more than what is expected of them. Nikia’s background is in children’s education, specifically children with special needs. Since joining the BoMF team, she has run two marathons and has earned the title of our annual half marathon and relay to be named after her.
“I have never been a part of an organization that has been so life changing for others and myself included. I am one of the many support systems that our residential members depend on to help them become successful in life. I am committed to doing just that.”
Nikia graduated from Coppin State University with a degree in Applied Psychology.
