RunningWorks is a grassroots 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina. The program was founded in 2012 by Meredith Dolhare as a way to provide outreach to Charlotte’s homeless community.

The organization seeks to improve the health and well-being of men, women and children experiencing or at-risk of experiencing homelessness. These vulnerable communities are at higher risk of negative health disparities and outcomes. We seek to address these issues by promoting healthy lifestyle habits through wellness initiatives, life skill development, social support and case management.

Our programs and services are designed to achieve the following goals:

  • Provide wellness initiatives that improve physical, social and emotional well-being
  • Provide health education and access to preventative care to help individuals gain a clear understanding of their health status and learn measures to maintain routine care
  • Identify sources of chronic stress and adopt healthy coping mechanisms to decrease the impact of chronic stress
  • Offer interventions which provide access and exposure to enhance an individual’s social and community support system
  • Provide case management services to connect individuals to community resources and initiatives which address non-medical drivers of health (i.e. healthy food, education, employment, safe housing, transportation)
