BENEKIT:

Benekit is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to solving the homeless crisis by providing emergency essentials kits, emotional support, and supportive housing. They have interviewed hundreds of homeless people, asking them "What do you need?" Surprisingly, food and water was on the bottom of the list. They learned that what the homeless needed the most is respect and support from their peers. After compiling all of the information from their interviews, they created four programs that would best address the ever growing homeless population: Emergency Essential Kits, A Friend in Need, Raising Awareness, Safe Haven Dwellings.
