We were alarmed by the rising number of homeless people in our communities, and the situation got so much worse because of the COVID19 pandemic. We wanted to build a tool for both people who are homeless, and those who're interested in helping the homeless.

How I built it

We built the website using HTML, CSS and Javascript. For the map, we used OpenLoayers, and ManyChat for the chatbot.

Challenges I ran into

We were working across 3 timezones, so it was difficult to find times where all of us could hop onto Zoom calls to discuss our progress. For two of the teammates, it was their first-time developing websites.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We built a fully functional tool which can make an impact on the community.

What's next for HomelessHelp

We're going to work further on improving the design and functionality, adding more resources for different countries. We would eventually like to purchase a domain name and publish our website!
