6,876 homeless in Houston & Harris County. We often walk past them and ignore the problem. We tune out their voices and avoid looking at their faces. This code allows us to reverse that process, to actively listen to their stories, to capture their faces in pictures and share them with the world.
Beyond this, we can all contribute to a data resource of where the homeless are, and at what times. This can be useful for the city, and for people curious about the breadth and proximity of the homelessness in their community.
We'll provide links to resources for people to donate to charities serving the homeless, and to get involved in other ways as well.
