This project was created to help the Jackson Interfaith Shelter streamline their process of aiding their homeless residents in obtaining different forms of identification necessary in securing more permanent housing through the government Section 8 program, as well as other citizen resources.
We created a quick, simple, easy-to-use-and-understand form with just a few questions to answers. Upon completion, each homeless resident will receive an action plan detailing which form of ID they should first obtain, how much it costs, where to obtain it, what information they will need to do so, etc.
Additionally, this form will auto-generate data on the homeless residents that fill it for the shelter. This will enable the shelter to be able to know the scope of the problem, and where the pain-points are. They can then use this knowledge to inform and impact discussions and decisions surrounding the shelter and homelessness in Jackson and beyond.
