Heroes for Hire is a community volunteer sourcing platform that serves as a one stop shop for these all medical staff and potential volunteers to create profiles and start linking up for help. The vision is to embed full scheduling and messaging functions to make this a seamless experience.

Not all heroes wear capes, including those who buy groceries for the doctor next door.
