Make This App For The Homeless

Win $25,000 creating an app to help the homeless!

The world is going app crazy. There’s an app for everything, almost. And with today’s technology, if you can think it, you can make an app for it. Best of all, you can make money with it.

One of the barriers to homeless services is that no one has yet found a way to make money by helping the homeless. Few if any people are willing to invest in it. As productive a world as we live in, there is little productivity in the homeless arena – and for that, very little in the way of advancement in the world’s general knowledge about homelessness. In many ways, we are still in the dark ages concerning homelessness, current cures for homelessness being about as technologically advanced as blood-letting to cure depression.

Well, here now is an opportunity to make some serious cash while developing a technologically advanced service for the homeless, and those who care for them.

The government has announced a contest to develop an app that helps homeless people, and homeless service providers, connect to the right services for them. Grand prize is $25,000!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing about this competition. My friend John and I, based in NYC, have been working on a website called http://wwwsherlockhomeless.org to provide a platform for people interested in helping their neighborhood homeless to connect with each other. We are big fans of your blog and would really like to get your feedback or thoughts on our website. What is the best way for us to contact you? Thank you for all you do.

    Best, Grace
