Hive Infrared is an experiment in poverty relief. Is direct cash assistance to those in need an effective way of alleviating poverty?
We began with our Founder's interest in "alternative" methods of addressing homelessness in Salt Lake City, UT. He has a background in "low touch" research methods, is a professor of management and strategy, and is a US Marine.
We are particularly concerned with helping unsheltered persons who are "resource resistant." Resource resistant persons typically avoid homeless shelters and related care providers. There is a high number of veterans among resource resistant unsheltered.
