About this Project:
We interviewed students at HSES on what they know about poverty and how people can help. Most of the students told us that they do not know anyone who is homeless or lives in poverty, but they help people in need by giving them money and donating clothing items that they no longer wear.
Our app Help Box is bringing to the market support and resources for those in need. We provide the less fortunate with resources that can help their situation, such as professionals they can communicate with, shelter and food bank information, and much more. We will have multiple features that will accommodate both those users in need and the ones providing the support.
To create our app, we learned about the human-centered design process. We interviewed students in our school to find out the need for an app and then brainstormed and came up with this idea. Then we created a storyboard, prototype, happy path, sketch, wireframe, and mockup on Figma.

Feedback from the Judges:
Overall I loved the presentation and it's not easy to see a concept of how something may look so it was great to see you explored the idea of how it would actually look and behave. I think this would be a great tool to see implemented in all communities so that even people not in need can identify places they can volunteer, or donate time/resources to help out their neighbours.
