It’s difficult to sleep if you don’t have a home. It’s especially difficult to sleep deeply when you have no way to secure your personal belongings and you’re worried about your personal safety. Unfortunately, this describes what sleeping is like for the homeless.
Homelessness is an incredibly prevalent issue in the US with over 500,000 people going without shelter every night. This has devastating effects on public health and the team at Tuck Sleep has created a portal to help increase awareness and help those affected by homelessness.
The portal contains a complete directory of all emergency shelters in the US, organized by state, with contact information (phone, web and address) as well as all of the services they offer plus a curated compilation of national and online resources for those affected by homelessness looking for help. They have also put together an overall study on homelessness in the US today.
