TECH FOR CHANGE
Tech for Change, a tech startup by OurCalling, designs premium user experiences that support our homeless neighbors around the globe. For achieving social inclusion and safeguarding at scale, to a degree that the thousands of potential homeless users would not have been able to access through other services, OurCalling won Best Wireless Innovation and Excellence in Social Impact Award at the Wireless Broadband Alliance Industry Awards. We are looking to raise $2.5 million to scale this solution and make it available around the world.
About 80% of the homeless population has cell phones. The OurCalling app provides an ample selection of resources right at the fingertips of our homeless friends. Eventually, the app will allow homeless people to reserve a bed at a shelter with their phones.
OurCalling is a team dedicated to creating homeless solutions. Headquartered in Dallas, OurCalling creates technology and uses it to address local and national homeless issues.
