Giving Homeless a Voice (Mail)



Homeless no longer has to mean being phoneless, too. Several companies are sponsoring Denver’s new Community Voicemail Project, which gives homeless people access to free phone service and voice mail. “Having a simple phone number, something most of us take for granted, can be the key to survival and self-sufficiency for people in crisis or transition,” says Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper.

The initiative was developed by Multi-Link and sponsored by private Colorado companies including Faegre & Benson LLP, Inflow Inc., Liberty Bell Telecom and Metzger Associates.

The goal is to help the Denver homeless population stay in touch with potential employers and case workers, and to find accommodations and medical care.
