App connects homeless youth in Mercer County with social services

An app called What I Need is helping homeless youth in Mercer County find meals, shelter or even a job. It works by allowing young people to find the services they need without having to talk to an adult, which can sometimes be a barrier for those needing to reach out for essential services.

Chasing the Dream: Poverty and Opportunity in America is a multiplatform public media initiative that provides a deeper understanding of the impact of poverty on American society. Major funding for this initiative is provided by the JPB Foundation. Additional funding is provided by Ford Foundation.
