Information Verification & Sharing: Service Providers and Homeless Youth in the University District, Seattle, WA
Access to up-to-date service information is key to providing the best assistance to youth experiencing homelessness. Prior to this project, there were multiple locations where University District service provider information was collected and shared, making it difficult to know what information was current. Utilizing information management skills, team members collected, verified, and merged service provider information into Strappd, an existing mobile app for individuals experiencing homelessness. Team members also updated University District Service Providers Alliance fliers and Doorway Project Google calendars. This project allows information to be better managed by service providers and more easily accessed by youth.
