Improving Accessibility of Resource Guides for Homeless Populations

Many shelters and homeless programs have resources and helpful information for the homeless population. Resources range from mental health to affordable housing. However, if an individual has never been to a specific shelter, they have no idea what resources the shelter can provide. Many of the resources available can have a huge impact on an individual, but the limited reach is detrimental.
