I thought i’d kick the mini-series off by introducing you to my life.
Most nations are no closer to solving involuntary homelessness than they were in the 60’s. A connected community solves homelessness on its own, and so a few years back i decided to apply the Focallocal model and see whether we could bring people together to tackle the issue ourselves.
Nearly 2 years ago i posted on Reddit with an idea to help support the massive number of people sleeping on the streets in the UK. I received a hugely positive response to my post – so i took that and have been building a map to help them ever since. I quickly realised that this could help people all around the world the map is now a global map
after 2 years building i’m proud to announce our homelessness resource map is (finally) ready to Alpha launch!!
2 years ago volunteers at Focallocal began building the Brighter Tomorrow Map in response to the many homeless people around the World, and Governments/Charities inability to solve it. I’m proud to announce our homelessness resource map is (finally) ready to Alpha launch. Please tell everyone, and take 5mins adding all the resources you can find to it!
