This Organization Is Changing Our Response To Homelessness And Recidivism. Here’s How You Can Help

Looking for ways to get involved and help people experiencing homelessness and incarceration in NYC? Join The Doe Fund in helping over 28,000 homeless and formerly incarcerated men rebuild their lives.

Did you know that in New York City, about 24% of people who were incarcerated end up back in jail within a year?

New York City also has devastatingly high instances of homelessness, with the shelter system serving 50,000+ people per day on average.

Instead of enacting a punitive model to deal with what are really public health issues, what if we provided housing, job training, and alternatives to the criminal justice system?
