Description

Join the all-volunteer WeShelter team, and assist us in our mission to use mobile technology to allow everyone to contribute to ending homelessness.


The WeShelter app gives people a way to act on their natural impulse to help when they see someone who may be homeless, in the moment and at no cost to themselves. One tap accomplishes two things: helps get direct assistance to the homeless by providing real-time mapping data to homeless outreach teams, and raises money for housing by unlocking sponsorship funds. The app also makes it easier to get in touch with an outreach operator, and provides users with salient facts about homelessness in their city.


We are looking for high school campus ambassadors in the New York City area to help us spread the word about WeShelter on high school campuses. As an ambassador, you would play an integral role in our effort to give the city's high school students an easy way to engage with the issue of homelessness.
