Tech + Homelessness

October 18, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Social Venture Partners LA Presents: Tech + Homelessness: A Conversation on Ways Technology Can Impact Homelessness in LA on Thursday, October 18, 2018 from 6:00PM-8:30PM.

“How can technology impact the homelessness crisis in LA? Are tech-enabled services simply novel “nice to have” or can they make a real impact? What can data tell us and how can we determine and prevent those who are on the verge of becoming homeless? Can a 15-week coding course provide a path to meaningful employment? How does a mobile app known as “The Akido Project” allow first responders to communicate updates on unsheltered residents?”

Social Venture Partners Los Angeles is excited to host a discussion on technology, innovation & homelessness, featuring Dr. Va Lecia Adams Kellum (St. Joseph Center), Mark Horvath (Invisible People), Margaret Williams (City of Santa Monica), and moderator Gale Holland (LA Times).
