Review for DO Foundation, Inc., Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There are charities, foundations, and groups that talk about how to deal with alcoholism, substance abuse, mental illness, and of course homelessness. There are people who regale you with stories of how much they gave to this disaster, or such and such cause - after all, "every little bit helps" - well, I think that is only the beginning. Sure, money helps, however, in my book, it is WHAT YOU DO that matters...talking is just blah blah, money can sometimes be mis-managed, and checkbook-charity is just that - one facet of giving. The DO Foundation is about ACTION - stopping in the middle of your busy day to help someone in need...giving up a hotel room for an elderly person because you can. Providing "DO Bags", helping with transitional housing, 24-hour access to laundry facilities, treatment program referrals, on-the-spot emergency asistance - this is REAL ACTON. I completely support the DO Foundation for what they DO.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Just observing the ACTIONS taken by the team.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
