Project App seems to encourage homelessness, not prevent it
Wouldn't it make more sense to include apps that prevented people from being displaced from their homes, rather than simply helped them find a bed for a night, afterward? It's also deceptive to imply that resources always exist for the homeless as many cities services are stretched thin at best. Wouldn't it make more sense to prevent the processes that render many people homeless, such as unchecked condominium conversion of existing affordable housing, foreclosures, or gentrification?
