Resource map view for Asylum Connect
Asylum Connect Catalog
Fullstack Web App

AsylumConnect’s current verification model is a bottleneck, as volunteers must independently verify resources for each city they expand into. In addition, volunteers are not (all) members of our target community, and are not the best-equipped to verify whether or not a resource is LGBTQ-friendly, asylum seeker-friendly, etc. Allowing community members to tag, verify, endorse, and report resources, AsylumConnect will empower and ensure the safety of its highly marginalized communities.

Medshare
Fullstack Web App

Volunteers at MedShare identify and categorize a large quantity and variety of medical supplies. MedShare needed a way for volunteers to identify these incoming products quickly and efficiently. To address this problem, we created a mobile-friendly website with a search tool for volunteers and admin at MedShare to use to search for product ID's. This search tool contains many features to improve volunteer productivity, including a search by several parameters, favorites, and an FAQ page.
