Weekly Civic Hack Night w/ Concrn
Interested in helping San Francisco? You have found the right place!
Join neighbors, government employees, designers, coders, students and more! Our weekly hack night is focused on civic tech and making government services better in San Francisco. We hack/build and learn together every Wednesday evening.
• Contribute to the betterment of San Francisco
• Build your own portfolio of work or work on someone else's cool project
• Meet new (and different!) people
This week: Concrn's Technical Director, Hy Carrel, will give us an update on recent progress in our compassionate street response, technical development, and new developments. He will also be seeking user testers to go through mock ups of the next version of the mobile app.
Concrn is a local nonprofit compassionate social service network that connects people in need to responders trained in crisis de-escalation. Concrn offers an alternative to 911 for mental health crises and responds using a harm reduction model. Concrn's first coverage area is the Tenderloin, and local volunteers are building our mobile apps and dispatching platform.
