We built a platform for People’s Emergency Center administrators, staff, and volunteers that can allow individuals to sign up to volunteer and subsequently obtain clearances.
People’s Emergency Center (PEC) is located in West Philadelphia. PEC’s mission is to nurture families, strengthen neighborhoods and drive change. For families, children, and youth experiencing homelessness, PEC offers more than 235 affordable housing units, job training, parenting and early childhood education, financial education and planning, life skills and technology classes. PEC seeks to change the life trajectory for the families who seek its services and inspire them to achieve housing security and financial stability.
Currently, PEC is planning on rolling out the application to existing and new volunteers. In the future, they also hope to incorporate an event management platform where admins can add volunteering opportunities and volunteers can sign up for these opportunities.
