About this Project:
Changing Lives is an app that was created with the purpose of changing the lives of people in our community. Homelessness and hunger have always been an issue in our community of EastNew York in Brooklyn. The Covid-19 Pandemic made the situation worse. It also caused everyone to stay inside to keep safe.
We designed our app so that you can help feed families from wherever you are with the click of the button. In doing our research, we learned that there are a lot of children who are homeless and hungry and not just adults. We know that most people want to help so Changing Lives will make it easier for them to do that. Providing a meal or supporting someone with shelter could be the first step in their new beginning.
With Changing Lives, you can donate money or food, and you can also find shelter if you need it. We want to be the ones to start Changing Lives!
