“South BK Mutual Aid App”
About this Project:
Our app was designed for the purpose of organizing the database of the South BK Mutual Aid Program. We wanted to tackle the main issue of acquiring volunteers, receiving resources, and providing easy access for those who request for aid. During interviews with the coordinator of the mutual aid program, we noticed the lack of efficient database and resources. In order to combat that, we decided to focus on those issues when developing this design.
The app itself was planned out to provide an efficient sign up process from which the user will then be directed to create their profile and then later select a few keywords such as kosher, vegetarian, etc in order to describe themselves to personalize their app use. Once that is done, the app will then provide a tour which upon completion will give the user access to requesting assistance, opting to provide resources/food, or volunteer for the mutual aid program itself.
