image1Volunteer: ShelterTech Datathon (Homeless Resources Database)

We invite you to join us for a virtual “Datathon” workshop, in which volunteers will have the opportunity to verify and maintain our directory of resources for the homeless. No technical experience is required except for some internet searching skills. Volunteers will need to log into the workshop through their own laptops. ShelterTech’s Datathon leads will walk you through the process and provide support throughout the workshop. ShelterTech is a non-profit organization, based in San Francisco, with an all-volunteer team that develops digital solutions for homeless and underserved populations. ShelterTech was founded by Darcel Jackson who became homeless after losing his job as a welder in the Bay Area. Darcel gathered a team of tech professionals to build what is now the SF Service Guide, an online repository of services available to homeless and underserved communities. Keeping our database of over 360 resources up to date is critical especially during the COVID-19 crisis.

We look forward to working with you!
