This platform uses crowdfunding so you can help a homeless person. Based in London, Beam is a new crowdfunding site that focuses on giving homeless people job training so they can re-enter the workforce and be successful. In the United Kingdom more than 8000 people are living on the streets with an additional 200,000 'hidden homeless' who live in temporary accommodations.
The website states "Beam crowdfunds employment training for homeless people, helping them to progress towards stable, paid work." Charities like St Mungo's, ThamesReach and The House of St Barnabas suggest members. Beam aids members by helping to plan training and raise funds. The public can help a homeless person by contributing to their crowdfunding campaign. Beam also functions as a community for past and present members to support each other.
