SacHomeless Team – SacSOS mobile site and website
Concept: SacSOS is an aggregate of resources available to those experiencing homelessness or in need of Sacramento County human assistance services – from mental health, medical care, shelter options, youth resources, and food resources – including hot meals, food pantries, EBT and WIC merchants. The mobile site uses geo-location to sort nearest services and the desktop website allows for printing accurate, up to date, “street sheets” that list services. This solution is built on the existing open source Ohana API developed by Code for America in San Mateo County.

Share Human Assistance Resource Exchange
Concept: This website connects organizations with surplus equipment eligible for donation and organizations or individuals in need of resources. Using this platform, an organization can make an account and then post an inventory of surplus equipment that would otherwise be destroyed. Individuals or organizations that are in need of donated resources can also make accounts and then apply/request the available surplus.
