Support The DOAP Program
Fundraising Goal: $200,000
- 30% 30%
Calgary Alpha House is currently undergoing a campaign in support of our Downtown Outreach Addictions Partnership program (DOAP). In September 2019, The DOAP Team experienced funding cuts amounting to $20K/month. Greater funding cuts are expected in April 2020. The cuts in April would result in major program reductions with the number of teams on the street and the communities served, which this fundraising initiative seeks to address.
DOAP is an essential mobile and outreach service that is doing unique work within Calgary. Team 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.
Part of our campaign includes a special holiday fundraiser taking place on Tuesday December 3, 2019 (tickets.mru.ca/huroncarole ). Tom Jackson and friends will perform The Huron Carole at the Bella Concert Hall in support of Alpha House. We are extremely excited to be working with Tom Jackson again this year and are honoured that Tom will be donating all of the proceeds of the event to the DOAP Team.
We are inviting Calgarians to be part of the solution in keeping DOAP on the street, serving our community’s most vulnerable people.
For every $1 invested in the DOAP Program,
there is a $9.43 social return on investment.
