One home is a web application designed to assist people in need, aimed at the homeless in particular, in finding the closest resources to them any where on the globe. Our app communicates with Google Map API to list the closest shelters near the given address.

Beyond that, we wanted to give shelter owners a platform to signal to the community the status of their inventory: if there are any vacant beds left, if they provide food services, medical assistance and access to clothes banks. To do that, shelter owners can sign up for a free profile, verify their shelter by providing an ID (like an electricity bill) and create an updated profile on the application.

We also provided the ability for any person to create a profile and to reserve a place in a shelter as a guest or as an already registered user.

In the future, we would want to work with an organization that provide free ride shares to people in need such as Red Nose.
