Women all over the world find themselves quickly in sexual or abusive relationships, or are suddenly hit by natural disaster. The recovery to provide humans basic needs is incredibly slow and most end up being homeless at some point. Some women who are also in abusive households often stay in these toxic homes because they feel as though they don't have the means to leave.
What it does
SafeHouse connects women in need of housing to willing hosts that will provide certain amenities. A user can come to the website and register to be either a host or a tenant. If the user is a tenant they have the option to enter a pseudoname for protective purposes. They can register, log-in, search through houses by type, number of bedrooms, the amount of occupants, location, and availability. The exact location of the houses are not disclosed until a booking has been made for safety reasons.

What we learned
Nothing is easy and trial and error is the only way to truly "hack" an idea.
What's next for SafeHouse
Hopefully we could make this into a mobile application, create a database to store the information, encrypt the user data, and make a difference.
