Project Idea

Human Services Basic Needs Locator

Idea to create an application that allows a user to select what basic services they may need assistance with (food stamps, shelter, safe house, etc.) and then the nearest location to obtain that service (using both geolocation and geofencing). For example, if someone needed assistance with obtaining food stamps, the app can either direct the user to the nearest government building to obtain assistance completing an application for food stamps or to take that one step further, it could tie into MNHelp.org and display the nearest food shelf, hours of service, required documents, etc.
