Giving the Homeless a Hand Up with Technology

Jan 2, 2017-- At HandUp.org, before you help someone in need, you can see their face, look into their eyes, see their children, their smile, read about their challenges, and even send them a message. In a meaningful way, HandUp.org connects donors with those in need. The brainchild of Rose Broome, HandUp.org fulfills a need she realized existed when saw a homeless woman sleeping on the street.

"With all of the innovation that we have here, and all the resources, I wondered why I could pull my phone out of my pocket, push a button, get a ride, push another button, get dinner, but there wasn't a button that I could push to do something to help that woman," she said. This article and video share Broome's inspiring story. (8254 reads)
