Our mission is to help the
homeless become citizens again
Use innovation and empathy
to change lives
Citizens Again is working to build an environment large-enough to obtain economies of scale, in order to cost-effectively provide more housing, with more services, to more people, quicker and at a lower cost than any other housing effort.
Not the status quo
Years ago, I was working as a software engineer in the corporate world. I was laid off, and I realized I wanted to make a difference to others. So I left my career. I moved my family to a more affordable area to live, and began my effort to “change the world.”
I tried a few things, but I realized I could have the greatest impact on those that need help the most – the chronic homeless.
I’ve been an entrepreneur my entire life. I started a computer magazine at age 22; I’ve created sold-out seminars; I’ve created websites and apps; I rented a Major League baseball park for a startup expo; and when I was a kid, I went door-to-door and sold personalized greeting cards to earn myself a pinball machine.
Helping others isn’t new either. I’ve volunteered quite a bit in my life, and I met my wife volunteering in her 4th-grade classroom. I’ve been married 18 years, and we have three boys. And I have a degree in mathematics.
Great things are coming. Stay tuned.
Create economies of scale to help prevent, reduce, and exit homelessness
This will be accomplished by creating a system to help the current unserved, as well as work with partners across the country to help make a difference with homelessness.
