Silver Linings Initiative
- Date Updated: May 2019
How data and technology are changing the way to tackle homelessness
Silver Linings Initiative is the world's first Blockchain-based digital identity and marketplace solution designed to empower and connect Indigenous and non-Indigenous people experiencing homelessness. Today, there are over two million people experiencing homelessness in North America, and without the right support services in place, that number is likely to increase.
To change the way healthcare and social services are delivered, the Silvers Linings Initiative designed solutions to specifically empower, and connect, those experiencing homelessness. Envisioned by Troon Technologies, the Silver Linings Initiative aims to combat two of the biggest challenges experienced by the homeless population, which are the acquisition of government identification and access to social support services.
