Social Services Technology Solutions has an easy to use process for eople to find immediate shelter. The process relies on geolocation and answering a few basic questions as to the type of shelter needed and the needs of the client. Our process utilizes real-time facility availability so that there are never anymore phone calls to shelters that respond with "Sorry, but we're not available tonight".
We also have an "all points bulletin" type of broadcast system. A social worker or human services worker or police officer can send an SMS text to all shelters and let them respond with their ability to take in the client in need. This frees up the social worker to continue assessing the client's needs while shelters respond to the "all points bulletin" SMS request.
