Homeless Connect: Phone Numbers for All!

Google is partnering with the city to provide phone numbers and voice mail service to homeless folks who want them, thus enabling users to, say, offer a callback number on a job application or retrieve test results. Said one formerly homeless individual at Wednesday's Homeless Connect event, where the plan was unveiled: "Having your family, friends and loved ones being able to say 'here I'm thinking about you, I love you, I want you to know you're mine, and I miss you,' can have a monumental change in one's behavior."
