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!
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 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.
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.
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.

GOD BLESS DO KEEP THE BLESSED WORK YOU DELIVER TO GODS PEOPLE!
I have personally witnessed the Do Foundation exercise charity, and assistance to the homeless & less fortunate, not just in Michigan, but many other states as well! The Do Foundation's desire and willingness to serve & provide for the homeless knows no limits, and its members really "DO" care! I support the efforts of the Do Foundation 100%!
I met Brian at a prevent homeless fund raising event. When I heard him speak and came to understand his mission I knew he was someone who truly has a heart for caring about our fellow man. When we care of the least of our community, our society is better.
Brian O'Neal's compassion toward our fellowmen is exemplary. I have watched him grow from his experience with this foundation. DO Foundation creates the avenue to help serve others. I fully support this work.
THIS BROTHER IS AN AWESOME HUMAN BEING. WHAT DO FOUNDATION DOES FOR MY HOME TOWN OF DETROIT,MI IS OVER THE TOP. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT DO FOUNDATION IS THIS: WHAT THEY COLLECT THEY DISTRIBUTE "IMMEDIATELY" NO RED TAPE, THIS BROTHER NOT ONLY TAKES IT TO THE STREET, HE LIVED ON THE STREETS WITH THE HOMELESS TO UNDERSTAND AND GET TO KNOW WHERE AND WHAT BROUGHT THEY PEOPLE TO THIS PLACE. DO FOUNDATION IS NEEDED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. THANK YOU MOST TALENTED BRIAN ONEAL AND YOUR DO FOUNDATION FAMILY!!1
I support the DO Foundation, because the founder is a man who REALLY cares about homelessness and the homeless. He and his organization go above and beyond what most people do for the homeless.
I support this organization because the Founder believes enough in what he is doing that he put himself in situations to experience homelessness first hand. How amazing is it that a man in his position would do that and more than once. I believe that one should try to help those less fortunate than themselves. This organization is the result of someone who saw a need and was willing to put forth the initiative to try do that.
