Our New York City Director, Tracee, just passed this along - what a great idea! A friend has come up with an idea for an app that would allow homeless individuals to find/access resources that could help them get off the street.
Let's imagine the awesome possibility of this idea:
Say you come and serve with CSM on a short-term trip. Your group is sitting in the park, striking up a conversation with a new homeless friend. After sharing some lunch and learning about your new friend, you find out that he really wants to get off the streets, but doesn't know where to turn. Well, your hip youth pastor can get out his iPhone and use this app to find out where to direct your new friend. Awesome!
To make this a reality, though, it needs some serious votes. Head on over and vote now!
