DOAP Team Fundraiser
Fundraiser for Calgary's DOAP Team After Recent Funding Cuts
About this Giving Opportunity
The recent announcement about the reduction in provincial government funding to the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) is raising questions about the future of the DOAP Team and the implications for the people they serve and our broader community.
Since its beginning in 2005, our DOAP team has served a unique need within the city of Calgary. The team is an essential mobile and outreach service as members travel throughout the inner city, Beltline and outlying communities to assist people under the influence of drugs or alcohol who need help navigating shelter, detox, medical services, housing and other programs and resources.
There is no other team doing this work in the city, it will almost certainly get offloaded onto an already stretched public service system [Calgary Police Service and Emergency Medical Service].With that in mind, we are throwing a huge fundraising party at The Palomino, with 9 of Calgary's best acts on December 13th. Tickets are available here:https://www.showpass.com/helping-keep-doap-team-on-calgarys-streets/?fbc...You can check out the lineup below:
