Community Safety Net
The aim of this app is to provide a single point of access to those in need to locate and identify resources within their community offering services to those in need. Specifically designed to aid those suffering from homelessness to identify, locate, and secure shelter during at risk periods (ie.... COVID, flu season, etc...) but also to help those in need of all services being offered as public benefit to our communities.
The purpose of our application is to help the homeless and others in need find and access the services they need to survive and thrive. Our application will enable them to locate nearby shelters, food banks, free clinics, and other resources including mental health support and abuse centers. The app will also provide information about the services offered and contact information for each resource.
Our proposed application will be designed to be user-friendly and accessible. It will be available on both Android and iOS devices, and will be free to download and use. We plan to partner with homeless shelters and other non-profits in order to ensure that the app’s information is accurate and up-to-date.
