About the Project

Description

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.

How far along is it

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.

Help Needed

Tasks that need to get done

We need a Wordpress developer to help us with the website. It's okay, but could be better.

We need technical writers for documentation. If you are a dev and would like to do this instead, by all means!

We need usability testers.

UX design and UI design are also key skills we're looking for.

We need a logo!

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.

We will also need localization as this is meant to be a global app.
