Whether it’s a natural disaster or a family emergency, people need to know how to locate food banks, senior services, domestic violence shelters, crisis helplines, support groups, affordable daycare, low-cost prescriptions, mental health treatment and more when a crisis happens in their lives.
Deona Hooper, MSW, Founder and Editor and Chief of Social Work Helper, explained why the app was created. “No one is exempt from experiencing a crisis in their lives, and when it happens, you don’t need the added anxiety of figuring out where to begin your search for information,” she said.
“A huge part of my job as a social worker was to connect people to information and resources, and I hope this app will make it easier for individuals and helping professionals to find resources faster using mobile technology. The idea behind this app is to give everyone the ability to be a social work helper. ” – SocialWorkSpeaks-NASW
