For pretty much everyone, the cellphone has become a vital connector. With it, we stay in contact with family and friends, stay up to date with feeds on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, check email, use it for work or to find work, play games, watch shows and read books. For all of these reasons and more, a cellphone is a lifeline for people experiencing poverty. Many choose to pay for their cell plans over food. When the receptionist at Covenant House said "if you haven't got a home - you've got a phone" he knew what he was talking about. Without a constant and reliable 'place' to be, mobile technology offers that connection. It's also security - hold it up to film a tense situation and the situation can resolve itself. Imagine that.
