Our goal is to create an interactive database (both web-based and smartphone app) available to all the members of the community of Greater Victoria, British Columbia. This is something that we are desperately lacking in our city; there are services going un/underused, people not accessing any due to unawareness, and service providers themselves being unable to redirect people to alternative options. This app will provide a comprehensive list, which will be constantly growing and updated, to ensure that our diverse community is aware of the services that are available to them. Through this app, we will also collect data on which resources are the most "needed", and help the organization who is providing it to increase their reach and accessibility. In contrast, when there are persons who are still unable to find a suitable resource, we will lobby to address this gap and ensure that certain groups and demographics are not excluded. The urgency can be seen in the large number of hospitalizations for mental health related issues and suicides of loved ones experienced by many of us this organization.
