StreetConnect is a mobile app designed to create better communication between social service agencies and their clients. Using a secure online admin, organizations and case managers can send both real-time and scheduled messages—like weather alerts, event announcements, surveys and other useful information—to the clients and communities they serve.
The app is text-based, which means even the simplest cell phone can be used to access information. Users specify the type of notifications they want to receive about services that can meet their needs, and information is transmitted via text message.
