A city in recession has lead to a rise in homelessness. With increased housing costs and few employment opportunities, may have found themselves on the streets with no options to rebuild.

In memory of a young homeless woman who lost her life to suicide, The Doe Fund was created to help the displaced, individuals with criminal records, and recovering addicts with education and training, employment, counseling and programs they need to transition back into a life of security and independence.

With job placement services and paid training, The Doe Fund also provides affordable housing as well as support for those suffering from chronic illness and/or substance abuse.
