    Goal this Project Supports:

Our Goal is to: Create a Master List of all the organizations based in Arizona that are currently working to Solve Social or Environmental Problems in our Community. Add all organizations to the Directory of Organizations on the website along with the services they provide and their service area. Provide current & accurate information to the public about these organizations and their services that is quick, clear and effortless to access. Make it easier for people in our community to find specific Nonprofit organizations when they want to help, connect, collaborate, mentor, volunteer, share tips, offer advice, donate items, sponsor events, or give money.



    Reason this Project is Needed:

It is often difficult and time-consuming to find accurate and up to date information on the resources available to help people with the questions and concerns that they have regarding this issue. People are busy and stressed with all they need to do to just get through the day. If they are able find information, it is often out of date or incomplete. It is important to give community members and professionals access to crowd reviewed, current, accurate and readily available information so that people can get the assistance they need regarding this issue.

New organizations are constantly formed and old organizations go out of business or change the services they provide. By frequently updating the information in the Directory of Organizations, we will help people from the public contact the correct organization for the correct service. This Directory will also help organizations that help with this issue to know who else is helping this same issue. That way we can coordinate efforts, cooperate with other organizations and spot gaps in service that need to be filled.

The information gathered through this project will be very useful to anyone assisting friends or family members with questions or concerns regarding this issue. Individuals will have instant access to all the tips, resources and organizations that other people have recommended as being very helpful. This will make anyone using the website an instant pseudo-expert on this topic because they will have immediate access to the crowdsourced experience and expertise of others who have dealt with and successfully resolved similar issues. This makes it easier for professionals and members of the public to assist someone needing help with issues regarding this issue.

    Finished Product:

We will create a searchable database that allows people who care about this issue to easily access the services and organizations that can help them to answer questions and resolve issues. We will make it easy for people interested in advocating for or helping with this issue to find the help and assistance they need. We plan to rationalize the service search system so that people can easily access current and accurate information about the resources that are available to help them. Hopefully, our community will be able to catch problems earlier by connecting people with the people and resources that can help with this issue.

Recommended organizations will be added to the Directory of Organizations on this website along with the services they provide. This will make it easier for people to find the exact organization that offers the specific services that are needed. We are striving to make an easily Searchable Website so that all individuals and organizations may derive benefit from this useful information source just by typing a few keywords into the “Search this Website” option. We want to help People to Connect with the Resources & Organizations that can assist them in becoming more knowledgeable about this issue.

We will know that we have accomplished this goal by observing 25 people use this website to access resources that are relevant to them. If the person is able to navigate this website intuitively, without any outside assistance and without frustration, then our goal has been accomplished. If the individual can find an organization or service that meets their needs within a 10 minute visit to the website then our goal has been accomplished.
