Civic technology. Open Source Solutions

Civic technology, or Civic Tech (Digital technologies in civil society) are tools and services that develop civil society, create government transparency through the use of open data, simplify communication between citizens and the government, and involve the public in solving important issues.

Civic tech enhances the relationship between the people and government with software for communications, decision-making, service delivery, and political process. It includes information and communications technology supporting government with software built by community-led teams of volunteers, nonprofits, consultants, and private companies as well as embedded tech teams working within government.

Mobile app for open cities built with React Native.
Dwellingly App
The nonprofit JOIN is working to help transition people out of homelessness. However, their current system for staying in touch with landlords is inadequate. Code for PDX is building the Dwellingly app in conjunction with JOIN. Dwellingly will aid property managers in communicating with social workers and will eventually aid in supporting both tenants and landlords with a more streamlined rental property process.This app aims to replace the current system with a robust ticketing system to ensure the staff at JOIN can connect with their landlords and clients seamlessly. This will allow JOIN to provide support and improve success in transitioning people out of homelessness.
