Mobile App Helps Sandy Victims Find Food, Shelter And Clothing Services

ARLINGTON, Va. , Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Binary Group's HomelessConnections mobile application is being offered to help victims displaced by Hurricane Sandy to quickly locate survival services in one of the hardest hit areas of New Jersey.

HomelessConnections allows emergency responders, volunteers, and community organization staff to quickly access resources to help those in need and direct them to the closest locations for food, shelter, clothing, medical care, and other services.   To find food, shelter, clothing and other services in your area, go to www.homelessconnections.com or text 347-354-2508 with your ZIP code and service need (i.e., 07716, food or 07730, shelter or 07748, clothing or 07755, help).

HomelessConnections contains shelters, soup kitchens, and other services in Monmouth County and neighboring areas in New Jersey, and can dynamically support the addition of new services and locations that are being made temporarily available to meet people's basic needs.   Red Cross shelter locations and other emergency resource centers can be found in the mobile app.

The app is simple and intuitive to use and can function on any smart phone, tablet or laptop. Also designed to function in the most austere communication conditions, services can easily be located by simply sending a text.

Originally developed for the Department of Veterans Affairs' Innovation Initiative Project REACH, in collaboration with the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, and the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, Binary Group's scalable and rapidly deployable solution is being used to help Hurricane Sandy victims in need of critical services.  

"It is no surprise Binary accepted this challenge and delivered. Binary has been applying technology innovation to help solve real-world challenges for years, but what truly separates them from the pack is their passion to support those in need," stated Major General Elder Granger, MD, US Army (retired), who is a member of Binary's Board of Advisors.
