Mashable: How to use Google Maps to help the homeless

Mashable: How to use Google Maps to help the homeless. “Ashley Sundquist uses Google Maps as more than a way to get around. She’s turning it into an invaluable resource for people experiencing homelessness in her community. Sundquist has a rapport with a few homeless community members in Santa Monica, where she lives. Connecting with this community is a habit she’s long cultivated wherever she lives, whether in Los Angeles or the many East Coast cities she once called home. In January 2020, she was chatting with one of them, a man named Joe who often hung out in front of a local library. After Sundquist asked him how she could help out, he explained that, while he knew there were resources for homeless people in the community, he had trouble finding them. He needed a map.”
