We make software to help mutual aid groups, volunteers, and organizers.
About the Project
Resilience app aims to help resilient communities. Based on a tool built for Hurricane Sandy. Build a reputation by running successful missions, delivering groceries or checking on someone, Request financial help (and donor match) for those who may be struggling financially. The reputation system and credit trust lines for credit are a core part of this which we hope to work to improve over time.
Right now the focus is on building a support tool to help local organizers stay organized.
Based on experience, the need is often towards matching volunteers with needs at first and then will move towards keeping track of reputations and such for volunteers (mission scores), and then over time, the need for funds and donor matching becomes more important. We want to build something to cover all those bases.
Integrated within this project is another project, SafeTrace API, a contact tracing solution to ensure the safety and privacy of everyone involved. This is a separate project.
We have a working prototype, 162 active users, and one mutual aid group working with us. We need to reach out to more communities and revamp our website.
We need Gatsby.JS developers to help us with the website (in progress).
UX design and UI design are also key skills we're looking for.
We also really want to hear from folks who are acting as 'organizers' for groups in your community. We want to help solve the tech or social challenges that you have. Our UX designers and programmers are keen to hear what your most pressing concerns are right now.
