United Way and Homelessness Data Analysis
It was refreshing to meet with Protip and Amber from United Way. It’s been a bit of waiting (since Amber was out of town), so it was great to finally meet Amber and talk to both of them. Meetings can be boring and can drag on for quite a bit, and many times they don’t get much accomplished. But not this meeting. This meeting was a great step forward. A solid step forward. Everything was clear and to the point. We understood what they wanted and they were equally excited with our direction.
It’s not everyday that you meet people who are motivated to help the homeless. Nor people that understand the homeless. Well, that’s the feeling we got about the folks who work at United Way. They have a compassion, a caring heart. The homeless community is an alien group to most people. They’re ignored, avoided, and many times shunned. Here’s to hoping that our work and the work done by United Way can change that!
