I work in a homeless shelter in the inner city, and I have seen thousands of people stream through the shelter every month. I meet people who have truly hit rock bottom, and my only wish is to help them get in touch with family and friends, and I use a FreedomPop phone as my personal phone. This article explains how I originally used FreedomPop to save money, offer new phones to shelter residents and try to bring people closer together.
#1: Residents Come In Missing Their Family
I have met several residents who are desperately missing their families, and they only wish to tell their families that everything is alright. Family may be halfway across the country, but one cell phone call makes a world of difference. I hand out phones to those who seem most needy, and I teach them how to use the free plan on the phone.
#2: FreedomPop’s Free Plan Impressed
I stay on the FreedomPop free plan because I am connected to WiFi most of the time. I do not use much of my data, and I route all my texts and calls through an app that helps conserve data on my phone. I am not overpaying for my phone, and I am using a phone that even a homeless person may benefit from. https://techcrunch.com/2015/01/21/freedompop-wifi/
#3: I Load Special Apps On The Phones
I load special apps on the FreedomPop phones I pass out, and I ensure that every person who receives a phone knows how to use the phone properly. I am highly-invested in helping people reach out, and I ensure that my personal phone is used when I do not have a phone to donate. FreedomPop phones are quite simple for me to pick up when needed, and the phones are simple to use when placed in the hands of a needy resident.
I believe I have found the most excellent way to communicate in the homeless community. I offer as many phones as I can to those who need them most, and I teach every resident to use the phone for their own safety,
