Everyone has someone

Help make the connections that end housing instability. Using advanced technology, we help the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless, and their advocates, accelerate the process of finding and contacting a network of support.

Helping the homeless find a home

We empower individuals to take steps towards breaking free from homelessness by re-establishing and building their natural support networks. Using modern technology, we make connections faster and easier than ever before.

Connect Our Kids, originally established for children in foster care, has developed the most successful technology platform for family search and engagement in the country.

When we learned that 20,000 youth age out of the system annually without a network of support,
and many of those youth end up in homeless shelters, we knew we could help.

Meeting Pastor Ron and his team at West Coast Care, we saw an opportunity to scale up his life-changing work. Turns out, family search and engagement practices work for adults too. Amazing, right?

The videos below highlight the incredible work being done in LA County, and soon we’ll share best practices for helping homeless adults from Pastor Ron and his team.

Best practices for helping the homeless

We’ve partnered with West Coast Care to share family search and engagement best practices to create connections and belonging for those experiencing homelessness.

Our Impact

When you connect the homeless with a support structure, the quality of life improves for the entire community. Support equals safety for the homeless, and once they feel safe, they are often empowered to move into more stable housing. That means they are safer, warmer, dryer, and more comfortable than sleeping on the streets, parks, and beaches.
