“SWHELPER has finally announced the launch of its mobile app which is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. The SWHELPER mobile app was created to help people in crisis locate resources in their local area quicker.”
Whether it’s a natural disaster or a family emergency, people need to know how to locate food banks, senior services, domestic violence shelters, crisis helplines, support groups, affordable daycare, low-cost prescriptions, mental health treatment and more when a crisis happens in their lives.
Deona Hooper, MSW, Founder and Editor and Chief of SWHELPER, explained why the app was created. “No one is exempt from experiencing a crisis in their lives, and when it happens, you don’t need the added anxiety of figuring out where to begin your search for information,” she said.
“A huge part of my job as a social worker was to connect people to information and resources, and I hope this app will make it easier for individuals and helping professionals to find resources faster using mobile technology. The idea behind this app is to give everyone the ability to be a social work helper. ” – SocialWorkSpeaks-NASW
“Very nice app and the most appreciable side of this app is it is very simple and even a novice can use the app”, reviewed by Sarkar, an Android user of SWHELPER.
*SWHELPER App Recognized by the US Department of Health and Human Services as a community resource
