Code for Asheville: Help the Asheville Homeless Coalition Build An Online Community Resource
April 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Asheville Homeless Coalition is a local network of agencies, non-profits, faith groups, and other community-focused organizations that provide a safety net for homeless individuals and other people in need of assistance in the Asheville area. Their network of services is extremely valuable to our community because it extends beyond the scope of what our local government is able to provide.
Join our next Code for Asheville community night as we focus on learning about the roles that the Asheville Homeless Coalition plays in our community, and explore ways that we can provide assistance through technology.
Tracey Childers, co-chair of the coalition will be in attendance and will be helping to answer questions about the group, and the various agencies that operate within it. This will be a great opportunity to learn about the various agencies who are often the first responders to crisis situations for local residents.
We will be specifically discussing an online strategy for building a community resource and agency communication tool within the Asheville Homeless Coalition group:
We need help for this, so if you’re a Facebook guru, love promotional or creative writing, or are just interested in social media, this is a great opportunity to do some good!
Bring your questions and get ready to brainstorm!
