The Homeless Missions Operation App: Helping Manage Donations and Need
Track: Sustainable Development
Authors: Lori Schlueter
The Homeless Missions Operation app was created for mission operators who drive the streets to find homeless in need of food/shelter. The app collects data to manage donations and those in need. The problem was solved by using ArcGIS Collector. Geospatial analysis was used to find hot spots and best locations in order to better serve the need. By using GIS, they have managed donations/need more efficiently. This is helpful to our national audience because there is homelessness in every society.
