Shelp: A homeless shelter review application

Project tags:

mobile or web development

social justice

software development

Shelp allows users to view information about shelters in one place. Users who are seeking shelters, are able to view shelter information, post and see comments about shelters. We scraped hundreds of shelter data from google maps and allowed shelter organizations to update shelter information on our site once they verify their identity. For shelter administrators, they are able to claim their shelters in our application and modify shelter information. We believe our solution can help shelter users get informed when finding a shelter and for shelter owners to get the most up-to-date information to build community.
