Mini City

Mini City


Chronic homelessness is a major problem in the US. A US study determined that over 50% of homeless citizens were denied specific benefits because they were unable to produce ID, with COVID this is greatly exacerbated. This issue is detrimental to the citizen but also to homeless care providers, clinics, and cities. The United States spends over 10 billion on public costs related to homelessness (Forbes). Chronic homelessness is a major problem in our nation; with lack of ID being a major contributing factor. Mini City is utilizing smart tech to address an exorbitant need that has existed for centuries (direct quote from our first customer, the Former Grants Manager for the Salvation Army Melinda Allen).
