Can a iPhone Social Change App help us to End Homelessness
What do you care about? Ending homelessness? Saving the environment? Promoting peace? Stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS? if you are like us you are concerned about all of the above.
Fortunately, our friends Rich and Elizabeth Lombino have foundedSocial Change Apps to help you have a positive impact. According to the Lombino’s, “Social Change Apps™ is for anyone who wants to effect social change through social media. We developed Social Change Apps to provide a mobile and social media model to change the world, one click at a time.”
As we are all aware, for far too long, many nonprofit organizations and government agencies in the U.S. have been unsuccessfully managing the tragedy of homelessness. This is unsustainable. Working to end homelessness is much more humane and cost effective than the current homeless systems. We can and must solve the problem of homelessness. We have the tools to make this a reality, including affordable housing, supportive services (including mental health treatment, substance abuse treatment, other medical treatment and case management), supportive housing (affordable housing with supportive services), prevention services and empowerment. We should focus on these key areas to end homelessness.
