The DO Foundation is an organization that is dedicated particularly to giving homeless individuals hope by supplying their immediate needs. The workers of the DO Foundation go "to the streets" to communicate directly with homeless individuals to assess, then meet these needs. The founder, Brian O'Neal; Co-founder, Kelly Adolph and a myriad of hardworking volunteers work tirelessly to abolish homelessness in and around the Detroit area. "Team DO" of The DO Foundation also spreads awareness to across the country about the misconceptions that many have regarding homeless individuals. I have become more sensitive to the needs of homeless individuals through the knowledge that I have received from the DO Foundation. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing group of individuals who truly care about the people they serve. Even after several hardships befell the organization, the response is always the same, "The Mission must continue". I salute the DO Foundation for their hard work and dedication. They are truly a top rated Non Profit in my eyes. For more information about the DO Foundation or to donate, please go to www.dofoundation.net
I initially started supporting the DO Foundation (DOF), because of its founder Brian O'Neal. He has a passion for helping those in need. It gives me great pleasure to know that there is an organization that is truly interested in helping those in need. The DOF's commitment in helping end homelessness can set a standard that other organizations can follow, by going in the communities where help is needed; be visible and talk to individuals to determine their need and just show people that you genuinely care. Mr. O’Neal not only goes into the areas where the help is needed, but he also informs DOF supporters of the need that is greatly among us. That's why I will continue to support Brian O’Neal and the DOF.
The DO Foundation is doing a tremendous amount of work to help the homeless. Continue to support this outstanding organization!
DO Foundation works directly with those that are living in a state of homelessness. By hitting the streets and providing for the immediate needs. We are working diligently to open our first of many resource centers to aid and assist with the specific needs of the homeless. We have had tremendous success and many success stories.
I live in Nepal which is very far away from USA. But from face book & from some source I come to know that do Foundation working for humanitarian & when I check out yes really Do Foundation doing it. & Brain is real human who is spending his time/ money for shake of basic human need. & aware other too to be good human. There R lot Social Organization opened by people to earn name/fame/money but Do is doing as they talk (really social motive). Keep it up >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
DO Foundation is a wonderful organization simply by the fact that they go out on the streets to help homeless people. The founder is very compassionate and it shows by his actions. I truly believe he wants to make a difference. They go out of their way to help as many people as they can. Less talk and more action is what they believe in. If we had more organizations like DO Foundation I believe we really could eradicate homelessness in our country and possibly around the world.
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 truly believe in this charity, I love what the Do Foundation stands for. I will do anything I can to help this foundation succeed at its mission. I ve been homeless once and so this cause is very dear to my heart. The founder Brian O Neal is a great person and humanitarian. He actually live as a homeless man himself for two week so that he would personally know what it was like. He gives his celebrity status and his time to make this cause a great one. He is honest and dedicated to what he believes in...... I do too..!
i read the posts brian displays on facebook. this guy is passionate, compassionate and so caring about his DO foundation project. he has a gentle, natural way of drawing you in and helping you to remember lifes priorities. i know he spends time on the streets directly helping homeless people and then more time raising awareness, raising funds and raising his family. a true inspiration. a pleasure to know there are men like him around.
I have watched Brian Oneal from a distance exhibit his passion for wanting to extend love and what he has been blessed with with those less fortunate. How better to fulfill this passion than to have an organization such as (DO). This Foundation is giving back to those who have in many cases "given much" themselves, and now because of circumstances find themselves in a position where they have hit their "bottom." This Foundation and those like it need everyone's support because truly, a little bit goes a very long way. Continued success to this organization and what and who it represents.
A blessing Being Able to Help Others. Do foundation Was Just What Was Needed for the big push, I am very proud to be part of this organization. Do Something is the Beginning of a Stage Without End. Thank you all for making it possible a coat, a hand, love.
I was recently helped by the Do Foundation after a month unsuccessfully trying to get help from over 20 organizations in the state of Florida. Everyone I spoke to at the foundation were extremely kind, and showed great concern for my daughters and my well being. While we waited for transportation back home to Canada, (which they arranged) they made sure we had a comfortable place to stay and food. I am forever grateful to everyone in the organization for their genuine concern and kindness they showed to my family.
I give to several organizations via my workplace but I never really know if my contributions are helpful. I was amazed by Brian's talent as an artist. However, as I got to know more about the DO Foundation's role and the work that Brian and his amazing team are performing to abolish homelessness, I am truly in awe. I rallied additional pennies in my budget to aid the DO Foundation in its endeavors. I've never personally been homeless but I watched my mother struggle for years trying to prevent us from being homeless and hungry. If we were growing up now I'm not sure if she would have been as successful. God has given us a simple but powerful message. LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!!! The DO Foundation is doing this for us.
I follow this organization because I know the organizers really care. As someone who is among the less fortunate, I give back where I live through time and deeds because as a graduate student…I do not have a lot of money. This organization continuously inspires me to do what I can where I am… When I graduate, outside of science education, my research focus will be on studying and mapping (via GIS) issues (policy, perceptions, community networks) related to poverty and social justice. This is a great organization.
I have watched Brian from another city & state; I wish we had a Brian O'Neal where I live. I have donated to his cause & I recommend everyone do their part in their cities!!!
DO Fondation is a great organization seeking to help the homeless. It offers help to the homeless, which is much needed! Its people like Brian O'Neal that reach out and inspire other to reach out.
The DO Foundation is a grassroots organization that gets to the heart of the plight of homelessness. It's founder not only talks the talk, but walks the walk in order to best serve his constituents. By living the life, he can better assess the needs of the population being served. Kudos to the DO Foundation for working so tirelessly with the homeless population.
As the name says, this organization is not about talking about things, but DOING something to better the issue of homelessness. As the global and Stateside economy suffer from a decline too complex to go into details about, the DO Foundation is right where help is needed: In the streets, shelters, WITH the people in need. If there was proof for "Walk the talk", the DO Foundation is it. The hosts of the American Smooth Jazz Awards must have felt the same way, when giving their founder Brian O'Neal the Humanitarian Award of the Year.
I HAVE DONE LOTS OF VOLENTEER WORK MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE DO FOUNDATION. SPEAKING WITH THE FOUNDER HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HELP OTHERS, LEARNING AN READING TALKING WITH THE PEOPLE THAT'S ALSO AFFLIATED WITH DO HELP CHANGE MY WAY OF THINKING EVERY HELPING HAND HELPS .

GOING OUT TO THE PUBLIC MAKING SURE PEOPLE KNOW THAT THEY ARE THERE FOR THEM SOME EVEN BRING MAIL THEY DONT UNDERSTAND "THEY EVEN GO THE EXTRA MILE TO READ MAIL THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND! GOD BLESS DO KEEP THE BLESSED WORK YOU DELIVER TO GODS PEOPLE!
The work the DO Foundation takes on is very challenging, but they are NOT afraid! Brian O'Neal and his staff of volunteers have a solid, selfless mission to work with the homeless and they are champions beyond measure. They are to be highly commended for going directly to those on the streets to find out what is needed most. They're goal of having a "one stop shop" to provide resources for those in need is very innovative. I have spoken personally to Brian and know that his passion is genuine and far-reaching.
