Help alleviate homelessness from your phone. There are a lot of reasons someone may become homeless. Sleeping outside can be very dangerous and health can deteriorate the longer someone is out on the streets. You can help!
Often the public does not know how to respond when they see someone living out on the streets. Should you give money? Food? Or just keep walking? Well now there is a better option:
The Street Reach app allows you to make a report of someone living on the street to your local agencies that will attempt to make contact with the person(s) The longer someone is on the streets, the higher the risk of being subject to violence, and/or substance abuse. By using Street Reach, you get help quicker to those who need it. Be part of the movement to alleviate homelessness and change the way we respond to those living out on the streets.
