The project helped some of the thousands of unsheltered residents in San Fransisco.

In 2013, the San Francisco Homeless Count and Survey stated there were more than 6,000 homeless people in the city.

In January 2015 a scheme took to the home of the Golden Gate bridge to reunite those living on the streets with their loved ones.

The social media campaign aimed to give some homeless people permanent shelter off the streets by helping them find family or friends that they have lost contact with or have no idea how to reach.

Another project in the northern California city saw the 'Coalition on Homelessness' release an ad campaign featuring photos and stories of homeless people that went up on buses and transit centers.
