we’re a not-for-profit community of volunteers who create projects in an effort to make the World a friendlier, happier and safer place.
This project is an online resource map of free resources to help people living on the streets to get back on their feet. things like pass it on coffee, free food, addiction support groups, shelters, CV/Resume help, suit lending for interviews, etc.
About 5 years ago i had a serious neck injury and couldn’t work so i found myself homeless. i rarely felt homeless although i was living in squats and dumpster food, mostly because i’ve always been very good at finding things so resources were easy to track down. This map aims to give that to everyone who is the situation i ended up in.
The map is already live and being used for our activities, it just needs a few tweaks to get it ready for re-deployment as a Street Sleeper Resource Map
Some of the issues are related/referencing our ‘Gatherings Map’ which is almost identical, so the issues are related to both. that’s also not for profit, its a meetings organiser for people gathering to create positive action
