Miracle Messages reconnects people living on the streets with their loved ones (and us), through short video messages and social media. We partner with shelters, public libraries, churches, and soup kitchens to train volunteer detectives and offer Miracle Messages through our mobile app, kiosks, and website.
To date, 25% of reunions have led to stable housing or living with family again, and 90% of delivered messages have led to a positive outcome. All at a fraction of the cost of current government programs.
Miracle Messages has been featured in the New York Times, NPR, TED, and NowThis, whose video reached 26M views. Founder Kevin F. Adler started MM in honor of his Uncle Mark, who lived on-and-off the streets for 30 years. He began with a simple question: “How would Jesus use a smartphone?”
