Anne Mahlum is dedicated to creating and building enterprises that carry a strong purpose, which led to her founding Back on My Feet (BoMF), a homeless organisation supporting unsheltered people with independent housing and even getting into gainful employment. The organisation has grown to have chapters right across America, including Baltimore, Austin, Chicago, and New York City. BoMF is privately funded to the amount of $6.5m and has grown to employ 48 staff members alongside thousands of dedicated volunteers across the United States. Anne's vision for the organisation is to assist as many homeless people as possible.
