On February 21, 2017, in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania's Hack4Impact (a student organization that connects student software developers with nonprofits), we migrated the catalog from a static site to a dynamic web application and scaled our product to Philadelphia, PA. \\
Our long-term vision is to scale our catalog to all major U.S. cities and ultimately, streamline the safe integration of LGBTQ asylum seekers in the U.S. From a technical standpoint, we strive to provide an open platform that allows LGBTQ asylum seekers to self-determine their own resource needs both ethically and scalably. |

| {color:#222222}Description{color} | AsylumConnect is now partnering with a San Francisco-based nonprofit building technical solutions to help low-income families access community resources. This nonprofit partner will be providing AsylumConnect with full access to its Resource Server API, which houses all public resource information content, as well as its Application Server API, which provides access to all features requiring a user account (resource bookmarks, referrals, editing, etc). Both of our organizations are confident that this partnership will help AsylumConnect to scale its services to all major U.S. cities, further enabling LGBTQ asylum seekers to access life-saving resources. \\
* A complete rebuild and rebranding of our existing catalog web application, using responsive CSS and modern web frameworks (React.js, Node.js)
* This project will not involve backend web development, as One Degree will be sharing access to their well-maintained APIs for resource and user CRUD |
