Connecting Refugees with Needed Housing, Jobs and Services

Vlocity teamed with WoodGreen, Salesforce, Deloitte, and the Konrad Group on a rapid, agile deployment in the last month of 2015 to roll out an application to match refugees with housing, clothing, household goods, and a range of donated services. The H.O.M.E. portal is powered by the Vlocity Public Sector application, which is built on Salesforce’s world-leading Customer Success platform. The pre-built Vlocity application allowed the team to deploy in just weeks.  Watch this video to learn more about the H.O.M.E. Portal project.

The modern and easy-to-use Vlocity application guides sponsors, donors and refugees through the process of enrolling to use the H.O.M.E. site. Once enrolled, donors use a password-protected portal to list available housing and other forms of assistance and post relevant and informative images. Refugees and their sponsors can search and filter through the available offerings to identify those items that best meet their needs and connect with donors directly.

The 2016 ISM Conference Awards recognize state and local governments that are using technology to improve human services programs and deliver services more effectively and efficiently to those in need. Awards are presented in four categories: “Innovation in Service Delivery,” “Application of New Technologies,” “Collaboration Across Boundaries,” and “Jerry Friedman Excellence in Leadership.”
