The second duy of love

Paul Tillich, a twentieth century philosopher and theologian, once said that, “the first duty of love is to listen.” I’ve come to believe Mr. Tillich. However, I’ve learned something else along the way: If listening is the first duty of love, responding is the second.

In 2017, myself and a group of friends created a company to help Homeless Service Providers do just that; we help them listen. We created Pulse For Good as a platform for the voice of vulnerable populations. In business speak we created a client-satisfaction tracking solution. In regular terms, we created a listening tool.

"It is a wonderful survey tool created by Pulse for Good that allows us to get feedback from clients as they leave their appointments. It takes less than 2 minutes for them to complete (on an iPad placed in a private location in the office) and collects data on how they felt about our services. It is very helpful in tracking outcomes (and for providing funders data on program services used.)"
