ReachOut

Accessibility, Civil Engagment

ReachOut is a mobile-web application for coordinating and communication between 5-6 different homeless outreach organizations. There are many organizations that support the homeless through outreach but there was little to no coordination between each organization. This resulted in individuals falling through the cracks and not getting the resources they needed.

Homelessness outreach organizations let many homeless individuals fall through the cracks because of a lack of coordination. The team strived to help homeless outreach organizations coordinate while serving individuals on the streets through creating a mobile-web application.
