    Apparently research from Sydney University shows "95% of people experiencing homelessness have a mobile phone" however this doesn't guarantee access to the app and related services. (Source)

    I totally agree there is a need for a wholistic approach to the problem and I don't think the app or it's creators are preaching any form of technological solutionism. This app is one piece of a much larger puzzle and in my opinion helps highlight other parts of the infrastructure which need more resources.
