StreetChange is a mobile crowdfunding application that empowers average Philadelphia residents to help their street homeless neighbors with short-term needs while providing a path to permanent housing. Through the iOS and Android apps and our website you can contribute to necessities like socks, shoes, and raincoats requested by StreetChange clients who meet with a caseworker to discuss healthcare and housing options when picking up their goods. Look at their profiles to learn a little more about everyone enrolled in the program, see which items they need, and how much money is left to contribute. Through Bluetooth beacons given to our clients, you can even see if there's anyone who needs something nearby.
We are getting ready for an official launch this winter! So what can YOU do in the meantime!?!
1) Make a donation to StreetChange through the donate button below. Donations go to us through our fiscal sponsor, the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania (that's the organization name you'll see on the Paypal page), a 501(c)(3). All donations are tax-deductible. Money provided here goes directly into building the app and providing services that we can use to harness two abundant and powerful resources: the expertise of Philadelphia's outreach providers and the generosity of people just walking down the street
