D² is a 501c3 focused on prevention of homelessness for the Serious Mentally Ill (SMI) population.
Humanize the homeless by providing dignity in a bag and prioritize lives that may not normally qualify for support through government programs.
Provide housing related resources to the Seriously Mentally Ill (SMI) who live independently and experience a temporary setback so they remain productive members of society.
Re-frame mental health by minimizing the stigma that creates barriers to housing and employment.
Instill a sense of philanthropy into students and surrounding communities with our homeless outreach program
For many Serious Mentally Ill (SMI) individuals, independence has become a liability and lack of support for self-sufficient individuals (caught in the gap) leads to a cycle of homelessness. We currently support the chronically homeless, and our long term goal is prevention of homelessness for SMI individuals. Empowerment begins where charity ends, but stability (and support) are required. How can you help?
