Cell phones are vital in helping homeless people find jobs, maintain medical appointments, stay in touch with family, and perform every day tasks that we take for granted.
It would be really great if Minnesota approved a federally funded program that would provide free cell phones to homeless and low-income people. SafeLink Wireless is a program that should be operating in Minnesota, as it is in 35 other states (www.safelinkwireless.com)
Have a cell phone helps level the playing field for low income people who are trying to find a job. A report released New Millennium Research Council found that participants in the SafeLink Wireless program were able to generate $259 of additional income.
