Want to put your coding skills to good use in your community? Register to be part of the first annual Hack 4 Good!
This year's focus is #hackpoverty where teams of people just like you, throughout the Springfield area, are competing to "hack" together in 24 hours an application that:
- connects the homeless to vital resources
- connects volunteers in real-time to meet the needs of the homeless community.
While every homeless person's story and circumstances are different, it is common for either them or someone in their micro-community to have a smart phone where they can use free WiFi from various places all over the Springfield area to stay in contact and look for resources.
Many difference civic organizations provide and curate resources available to the homeless, but there currently is not a centralized way to make them available or to reach out to members of the homeless community.
Let's do something about it!
