AHAND / Social assistance concept for Homeless


In a country with a highly complete personal credit system like the United States, to help the homeless population get back on track, the crucial parts are helping them rebuild their credit and motivating them to self-reliance.
AHAND is a concept of social assistance for the homeless. It encourages volunteer residents to post simple housework opportunities for local homeless people on AHAND devices. Then, use the evaluation and payment data from volunteer residents to help the homeless elevate their credit reporting agencies' credit scores.
Finally, the homeless will able to re-accept by society and regain the confidence of self-sufficiency.
