Joinable – Disrupting Homelessness

Created in just 24 hours over the weekend at TechCrunch Disrupt, Joinable provides free voicemail, email and text messaging to the in-need populations served by non-profits and state agencies.

By providing the homeless and jobless with permanent and secure access to communication, aims to disrupt social problems.

Joinable was built by Ben Nadel, Aaron Foss and Mark Webster using Twilio’s web-service API for building communication apps. Although there are fees for using Twilio’s platform, the cost is low enough that it should be possible for non-profits and agencies to provide the service at no-cost to users.
