Now in its fifth year, APA Gives Back is an opportunity for APA members and annual meeting attendees to support a community organization in the city where the annual meeting is held. Support this year’s program with a donation to the Doe Fund. APA will match your donation dollar for dollar.
The Doe Fund develops and implements cost-effective, holistic programs that meet the needs of a diverse population working to break the cycles of homelessness, addiction, and criminal recidivism. All of the Doe Fund’s programs and innovative business ventures strive to help homeless and formerly incarcerated individuals achieve permanent self-sufficiency.
Since its inception in 2010, the APA Gives Back program has donated about $42,052 to local groups in cities hosting the annual meeting.
For more information about the Doe Fund, go to http://www.doe.org/index.cfm. Contributions may be made through APA’s registration system for the annual meeting at http://annualmeeting.psychiatry.org/registration.
