Besides offering a way to keep in touch with your loved ones, the obvious use for such a phone number: a way to be contacted when looking for a job.
Fantastic service! Thisis what I like to see from big corporations. It can allow homeless individuals the ability to get a job as well. I really didn't expect google to do this, surprising, but indeed a great service =D.
The question is: how many homeless people know how to use it? Or do they have people that are trained standing by for assistance?
Not all homeless people are stupid, some are actually pretty smart, and just happened to get themselves into bad situations. I think that one of the main problems with homeless people is that they are thought to be worthless to society, and that makes them scared to try to go out and do something with their lives. If they had some motivation from society they would be able to do better.
I agree with you Vicaphit...When I was younger and working at one of our old stores on melrose, there were quite a bit of homeless individuals that I got to know. Everytime I'd head out to the liquor store, or pick up some fast food, I'd get them a little something. They were actually quite bright individuals the ones I was speaking too. Of course, there is a large majority that tend to shoot them selves up with drugs and liquor when you give them money as well. But there are quite a few genuinely good hearted people who are homeless that just hit rough times.
I never meant to imply that homeless are worthless or un-intelligent.....I simply meant that the majority of them are of an older generation that wasn't brought up with technology for the most part so I question as to how many would be able to legitimately be able to use such a system.
Props for a good idea though....
