City-wide Initiatives: Mutual Aid

EXAMPLE

As we face COVID-19, local authorities understand it's essential that people organize where trusted relationships already exist - every neighborhood, apartment building, retirement community, school group, church, cultural center - communities small and large.  Now, they're equipping communities to #crowdsolve with Groopit.

First, define the information people should share

Check-in with every community member, figure out who needs help in-the-moment and who might appreciate extra support later, like our neighbors working in healthcare.

WHO NEEDS HELP

2

Count help provided, so our community members see what's happening and are inspired to jump in as they see how every action matters.

 WHO PROVIDED HELP

3

Identify who is willing to provide help to neighbors they know, like calling to check in on an elderly neighbor or delivering supplies.

WHO CAN HELP

1

In a mutual aid initiative, that means getting communities to share 1) who can help, 2) who needs help and 3) help provided. With a few quick taps, people share important information within their trusted communities. As the COVID-19 crisis unfolds, leaders can redirect communities to contribute new and different information.

Join. Community members use the iOS app, Android app, or any computer with an internet browser.

Report. Community members contribute important information with a few quick taps.

Know. Community members see what's happening as it happens, respond and jump in to help.

Every community gets their own linked Groopit. This allows communities to operate independently, and at the same time, stay connected so that when there's a city-wide need or change, they know immediately and can jump in.

Second, equip community organizers with a linked Groopit
