Um, maybe you know a place where you can produce stickers. Imagine some basic harmless, unimposing symbols such as circles, triangles, squares and so on. Paste them in different colors in a size in which they can be placed on your bell besides your family name or on your door.

Now design some more stickers, lets say in postcard-format, that will explain the different symbols and colors. Now paste or distribute them in your community and put a map or directions like arrows as well, so it to lead to the place or your home. Or, to remain fairly anonymous, put contact information like websites, e-mail adresses, phone numbers on it. But this could be a symbolic and acutal obstacle for those in urgent need.

Just a spontaneous idea, unfortunately I don't know any recipe for a invisibility-soap or similar, which could help the undocumented, nomadic, homeless and activist people way better and avoids attention of hostile neighbors.

I like your idea of this sort of box! Do you live near a main road or downtown? It would be awesome to develop that idea more. In my area there are not much people around, because I live in a rear house, in one of the outlying districts of the city, but maybe I will do a experiment to see if there is a need I don't observe so far.
