Mobile Health App Being Used to Coordinate Sandy Resources


HomelessConnect, a mobile app developed collaboratively between HHS and the Department of Veterans Affairs as part of project REACH, is being used to coordinate resources for victims living in hard-hit areas of the Hurricane Sandy aftermath.

Originally created to improve health and quality of life for among homeless veterans, the application has proven itself useful for recovery coordinators by scaling quickly to local conditions. By leveraging existing functionality, the platform has given coordinators the ability to broadcast locations of emergency resource centers, Red Cross locations, and updates as soup kitchens and shelters come back online.
