NKU develops Street Reach app to connect homeless with outreach workers

As the weather turns cold in Greater Cincinnati, making sure that homeless people are connected with street outreach and emergency shelter services becomes increasingly important. A new app developed at Northern Kentucky University puts the technology to make these connections right in the palm of your hand for the first time.

“Street Reach” aims to break down barriers between the homeless and street outreach services by allowing the public to make electronic reports of individuals in need.

“As winter arrives, we need to help homeless people come in out of the cold. By using the Street Reach app, anyone who sees a person sleeping outside can make sure that person is offered assistance,” said Kevin Finn, president and CEO of Strategies to End Homelessness.
