CHANGING SMARTPHONE BEHAVIOR TO ALLEVIATE POVERTY
Jan - Nov, 2015 | Boston, MA and Lawrence, MA
We provided 23 homeless-in-transition individuals with smartphones and ongoing touchpoints. At each session, our learners explored new ways to enhance their daily lives, apply to jobs, and find affordable housing. Over time, we built a safe space for information sharing and began a perception change of the smartphone as a multifaceted tool, rather than entertainment.
