This project was inspired by the outpouring of support from the online community in the wake of the new Texas abortion laws. Our missions is to connect folks who have expressed an interest in helping those in crisis stations with people who want to help!
What it does
SafeSpace provides a platform for people in domestic violence situations with those who want to assist with some of the mental load tasks, such as filling out paperwork, sourcing shelters, or indetifiying which social services would be most helpful
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We found there was some what of a learning curve with Azure Static Web Apps from a traditional create-react-app dev environment, such as transitions from webpack to snowpack, but once we were off and running things moved quickly. Making use of the serverless api was key to making the forum functional!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our UX design is absolutely beautiful!
What we learned
We learned a lot! Our UX designer got to check in some code to github, our django/python dev got to build her first api, and our React develeoper learned lots about serverless apis!
