IBM applies knowledge to Denver’s homeless challenge

Denver area agencies for the homeless are getting help from IBM to streamline the process of getting services to people who need them.

The company chose Denver and 15 other metro areas from among 100 applicants for its Smarter Cities Challenge. That program puts IBM’s expertise to work solving cities’ problems.

Gary Sanford, with the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative hopes the program will help untangle what can now be a confusing number of different service providers.
