Finding housing for homeless young people

We are pleased to share that young people experiencing homelessness in Western Australia will find their situation a little easier with the launch of a new Web-App by Anglicare WA and a UWA student team from Coders for Causes. 

The App, called Home for Now will allow young people to log on from smartphones, public computers and other devices to find where crisis accommodation is available, then search for live options close to them.

The App then makes a connection so the person using it can begin to get the help they need. Home For Now has been released for testing within homelessness services to make sure that it is suitable and user-friendly before release.
