#HomelessKidsMatter Mobile App
Donate now to help out the most vulnurable kids in Australia!
Currently our app can be viewed online at www.caretakers.org.au . But we need your donation to get it launched on the app store.
This is the very first time a homeless service has ever made such an app!
About the app: The #HomelessKidsMatter mobile app provides all emergency contact information for homeless shelters in Sydney and New South Wales, Australia, as well as emergency numbers for all Child Protection Services in the region.
Who will it help: The app is a much needed resource for charities, youth centres and a range of government and non-profit agencies helping homeless kids. Also most homeless teens usually have a mobile phone (though usually with no credit), having a app will be a great help for them as well.
Why we need you: We need your donation to pay for the initial setup costs for the app. We've specifically chosen a low-budget system that will help us get the app running as soon as possible. Donations go directly to Caretakers Cottage for setting up the app.
Deadline: Our app deadline is Youth Homelessness Matters Day, April 5th 2017.
About us: Caretakers Cottage has been helping homeless teens and their families for the past 40 years. We help keep kids safe and help them reconnect with their families. We provide a range of accommodation and support services for homeless young people and their families in Sydney, Australia.
Caretakers Cottage's program for young adults, Options Youth Housing, was the winner of the 2016 NSW Youth Service of the Year. The organisation is a registered Australian charity and is accredited by the NSW Children's Guardian. Learn more about the work we do at www.caretakers.org.au.
