In this podcast, Jonathan Kumar—a user experience designer by trade, and founder of several projects to solve social issues—speaks with KHC's former Executive Director, Edwin King, about Samaritan. Samaritan is a mobile app that enables Seattle city-goers to invest directly and compassionately into individuals around them struggling through homelessness. Bluetooth beacons, through the Samaritan app, collect donations that the beacon holders can use with the help of a counselor. Jonathan will be a keynote speaker for #KA​HC19, on Friday, September 13, 2019.

KAHC19 is a collaborative conference, hosted by Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) and the Homeless and Housing Coalition of Kentucky (HHCK), addressing the many facets for affordable housing in the Commonwealth—single-family, multifamily, housing counseling, energy efficiency, and housing for special populations. We believe that collaboration in affordable housing, healthcare, education, and the economy is essential for families to succeed.
