StreetChange Homeless App and Beacon

StreetChange is a mobile application that leverages the power of small donations to help people that need it the most: street homeless neighbors with short-term needs. Through iOS and Android apps you can contribute to necessities like socks, shoes, and raincoats requested by StreetChange clients who meet with a caseworker to discuss healthcare and housing options when picking up their goods.
