iPhone App
Version 2 is completed.

The Problem

Toronto has the largest number of organizations within Canada that provide social services. These organizations are spread throughout the city. The challenge is to be able to locate the nearest service provider that meets the specific needs of the local client.

The goal of this project is to build a smart phone application that is able to target the nearest social service organization that can fulfill the needs of each its clients.


We are using data provided by FindHelp Inc. to complete our work. 

Expected Outcomes

Our smart phone app will become a valuable tool for social service workers throughout the city. We have completed the second version of this app and are testing it in the field.
