The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to produce an iOS (iPhone Operating System) mobile application for social service caseworkers. This project aims to promote a culture of collaboration and utilize existing technology to link social work professionals and paraprofessionals to strengthen professional networks and accountability for organizations providing services. This app, ShareOne would potentially be hosted by Hillsides and potentially funded by the Kresge Foundation with a focus on Los Angeles County, California. ShareOne would empower caseworkers to share resources at the time they learn about or see them. The goal is to recruit individual users and nonprofit agencies to regularly use the app to share and find local resources. If funded, this app would become standard for every mental health and child welfare caseworker in Los Angeles County. Actual submission of and/or funding of the grant proposal were not required for successful completion of this project.
