Project: Work Together
Work Together is a community based task finder to help homeless get off the streets. Our solution is to provide a digital platform for homeless individuals to gain work experience by performing small tasks for local businesses. Small business owners will use our web-based app to post tasks like taking out the trash and cleaning windows. Local homeless individuals will apply for these tasks and build up a simple resume and list of references. Once a homeless individual has accrued a predetermined amount of work, they will be eligible for the WorkTogether Reintegration Program. In the program, we will work with local homeless-aid providers to the who provide mentorship, work training, and temporary living. We believe we are the most social innovation because we provide value to three distinct groups: the homeless population, small business owners and the local communities.
