Proposal: Portal for homeless people

Let's work together to create a web portal of resources for homeless people. I ran into a homeless woman with a child last month who was near the end of her resources and didn't know about some options (and in that area I didn't either). This can really be a social media application that could be used to link homeless people to information about options from people who are directly providing that resource. It is often not known for example that some small churches, mosques, synagogues or temples have resources for people or what their current status is.

Well, I don't know how can I help, but the idea seems good. What do you suggest we do?
