Homeless App

I like the idea of the homeless app described in a recent reblogged post. I think it would be great if these apps were connected to some kind of homeless social network where agencies could all be connected. When a passer by sees a homeless person on the street, he/she can use this app to take a photo of the person. This photo would be sent to the agencies connected to the social network AND when one of the agencies actually sends a case worker down to touch base with the person and ask them if they need assistance…. the agency or organization gets bonus points for getting grants.  If the actually assist someone into a sheltered situation THEY GET MEGA BONUS POINTS. How’s that for using technology for mans benefit?

Freelance writer. Activist on homeless issues. 48 years old. I write about subjects that need to be examined closely and thoughtfully. The idea for Brain Sections came from reading a book about abandoned asylums. I wanted to set a suspense story in that setting. The inclusion of crazed scientists turning homeless people into zombies is what makes the story unique. View all posts by tjmcfee
