If you are near a Harvey-affected area and want to help with relief efforts, we need you!
We are conducting a street by street damage assessment using a smartphone app. We need volunteers to walk in the street and capture photos of each house and fill out a quick form. Volunteers will NOT be talking to residents. The data will be used to expedite financial assistance by FEMA and American Red Cross. Other organizations like Salvation Army and many other aid organizations will also be able to use the data to better coordinate assistance efforts.
The app is made for those on the ground who are willing to go by foot, car or boat, and go through the streets and complete the form in the app. This effort will drastically reduce the time it takes people to receive aid from the American Red Cross and get financial assistance from FEMA.
