Doe Fund - Ready Willing and Able


Inspired by the idea that aiding the homeless is more than just giving them a meal, George T. McDonald founded The Doe Fund and in 1990 established Ready, Willing & Able, a work and job skills training program which strives to empower, employ and support the homeless in their efforts to become self-sufficient. Ready, Willing & Able has made ending homelessness and keeping city streets clean one and the same mission. It’s an innovative idea that solves two seemingly intractable social problems at once: homelessness and filthy streets. For the men in Ready, Willing & Able, those streets once symbolized dependency, degradation, and despair. Now they are a workplace, a means to rejuvenation and independence.
