SHELTER FINDER

Helping homeless care providers online, for free.

WHO WE ARE

We're a team of high school students from FRC Team 1678: Citrus Circuits. We're passionate about creating positive change in our community using the software and communications skills we've learned on the team. Shelter Finder began in 2018 when one of our students realized the difficulty first responders had finding available beds for those in need of shelter, and we've been running the project with a group of committed students ever since.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to eliminate slow communication between first responders and homeless shelters in our community by using the skills we've learned on Citrus Circuits. We’ve worked towards our mission by creating a web application that facilitates communication between first responders and shelters. We're very grateful for all the support we’ve received, and hope to continue the project and expand it throughout the Sacramento and Yolo County regions.
