Reconnect- The Cloud for The Homeless


An innovative tool to store homeless people’s personal information online, facilitating access to their rights.

There are approximately 140 000 homeless people in France. The fear of theft and the violence of street conditions compel them to keep possessions to a strict minimum. Official documents needed for social rehabilitation cannot always be prioritised. Faced with that issue, Reconnect created an online storage platform dedicated to homeless people. Reconnect is a secured platform specifically designed for homeless people and co-created with social actors working directly with the beneficiaries. The objective of the tool is to save key information and documents so they can be accessed from anywhere, anytime.
