Home4Less

Android application created at Global Hack VI in St. Louis, 2016. Our team created an application to assist the homeless in navigating to nearby shelters. It also reports important information to the clients including how many beds are available, who is allowed at the various shelters, and their standard operating hours. The app is also designed to be used by shelter volunteers to report the amount of beds available. The application was made in 30 hours by myself and four other team members. I have linked the dev post page for the project and it is also available in my Github.
