New App to Connect Community Resources
Social Work Helper—a news website dedicated to providing information and resources related to social work—released a new mobile application (app) that connects individuals and professionals to timely and available local services and supports. The app was designed to meet the needs of individuals and professionals seeking quick referrals, especially in times of crisis. It also functions as a social networking tool with a social media (Facebook and Twitter) integration component. Social workers may find it particularly useful when searching for specific programs and services that may be not easily accessible.
This app primarily focuses on the following key areas:
- Food banks
- Senior centers and services
- Domestic violence shelters
- Crisis hotlines
- Support groups
- Affordable daycare
- Low-cost prescriptions
- Mental health treatment providers
The app can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store and can be used on Android and iOS devices.
