Rural Net is a project that deals with the street situation in half rural context throughout Chile. The initiative comes as a response to the fact that there is no awareness of the particularities and differences of this, with respect to the urban context; therefore no specific measures have been taken to deal with it. Lack of centrality and public services are the main obstacles to deal with this situation. The project solves these problems through an interconnected system that improves the quality of life of homeless people and the entire community. The system consist of an immobile and a mobile part, acting interconnected: Headquarter associated with public institution, Mobile Operation Centers that go through the different Street Stops and provide services, Street Stops with public bathrooms that also act as bus stop and public access to water sources.
