“I am a conduit for helpful introductions for people who love getting sh*t done”

I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT

We live in a deeply unequal society and I fervently believe this new normal serves no-one. I am most passionate about providing opportunity and economic empowerment to those living or sometimes just surviving right among us in our communities. You can meet the people who are homeless we’re supporting into skilled work right now on Beam.

YOU CAN HELP ME BY

More than 1,000 people support a new person each month to leave homelessness and get into work on Beam. Each month, they’re introduced to someone new and they get to follow that person’s remarkable journey through training to standing on their own two feet through updates as well as live data. Many people tell us it’s the highlight of their month and you can join the supporter community in a few minutes. So what’s stopping you!
