Supporting homeless people together
In many communities there are many resources available for the homeless population, and yet homeless individuals are met with disdain and hatred instead of compassion. Showing them the resources available to them can get them the help they need, maybe when they need it most. Many nonprofits who help the homeless are unable to take advantage of the digital benefits technology provides. By getting them to digitalize and modernize their platforms, they can do greater good.
