Technology can be a real enabler for link Samaritan House and specifically the Worker Resource Center. The PayPal Hackathon gives us a unique opportunity to demonstrate how technology can help them and modernize a process that is currently done with pen and paper and a tomobola lottery system for choosing who gets the opportunity to work.
What it does
The application will provide a facilitation service to allow workers and employers to connect. Workers will register via the worker resource center. Employers will register directly and be able to submit jobs and manage their profile. The WRC will then use a calendar type interface to add worker resource(s) to the job and notify the employer that their job has been fulfilled.
