When a person loses their home, they lose more than the roof over their heads. Without a physical address, basic things like filling out an application for a job, an apartment or government help become exceedingly tricky. The London-based organization ProxyAddress can’t house the homeless, but it does offer them an address they can use to keep their access to support. The group solicits businesses, government agencies and individuals to “donate” their addresses to those in need. Next, ProxyAddress plans to expand to several other cities in the U.K. before expanding further. —Billy Perrigo
