Hack4Homelessness Final Report

  2. 2. Contents We believe young people should create, not inherit the future. Vibewire is the launchpad for young changemakers. 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) Background Homelessness themes Problem statements Teams and ideas Winners Next steps
  3. 3. Background Vibewire in partnership with Jewish House, NCOSS, Exodus Foundation, Minerva Collective, SGCH, QBE Insurance, Domain hosted a #hack4homelessness on 15-17 September 2017. Over 90 people participated in the hackathon including, coders, designers, architects, entrepreneurs and subject matter experts from Link Housing, Catholic Care, Exodus Foundation, Jewish House as well as people with lived experience of homelessness (past and current). More than 80% of participants had never been to a hackathon before - and only a small number of people had previously met. We were all swimming in uncharted waters. Over 36 hours, nine teams formed and developed solutions that addressed the key themes and problem statements.
  4. 4. Homelessness Themes Accommodation Where to find affordable accommodation, how to keep it and what options available Work readiness Help to get access to education and flexible employment Tools and services To deal with trauma, isolation, mental health and drug and alcohol In-kind and free services Access to medical, dental, legal, and accounting services
  5. 5. Problem Statements JEWISH HOUSE Challenge Homelessness isn’t just about shelter. We need to connect people to a network of services to support them. SGCH Challenge We need to find a way to encourage those who can afford private rentals to move out of social housing. NCOSS Challenge Young people account for 25% of people accessing homelessness services in NSW. Around 60% of those have spent time in out-of- home care. We’d like to reduce this by half. DOMAIN Challenge Affordable housing - helping supply meet demand.

  7. 7. Teams & Ideas
  8. 8. SICAS Shim, Muberah & Chester Problem you are solving: Youth job readiness and skills. Lack of job leads to post foster care homelessness. The SICAS solution to this challenge was to prepare training programs made to look cool to appeal to 15-25 life journeys.
  9. 9. Insta Shelter Jaclyn, Eugene & Amira Problem you are solving: Lack of transition accommodation The Insta Shelter solution to this challenge was to create private, individual demountable shelter for people transitioning into permanent accommodation.
  10. 10. Shack Kate, Juraj, Jackie, Jonathon & Christopher Problem you are solving: Supply meeting demand The Shack solution to this challenge was to dramatical- ly expand the supply of short term accommodation using AirBnB and Domain data.
  11. 11. Bed Scanner Carmen, Olivia, Ben, John, Jennifer & Shu-min Problem you are solving: Access to beds/accommodation The Bed Scanner solution to this challenge was to simplify the current “booking”/referral system reliant on SHS.
  12. 12. Fair Bnb Bonnie, Ethel, Greg, Hannah, Federico, Melanie & Sheng Problem you are solving: Share Housing The Fair BnB solution to this challenge was to connect peo- ple looking for accommodation to share housing options. View presentation
  13. 13. Doti Vinod, Vincen, Tam, Leon & Shehara Problem you are solving: How might we ensure there is a community safety net for every child in Australia to reduce the risk of homelessness? The Doti solution to this challenge was create a safe and se- cure physical and virtual community support network for all young people in Australia. #Hack4homelessness - food for the soul Event re-cap care of Vinod Ralh (Team Doti).
  14. 14. Good Mates Andrew, Joanna, Rishap, Angela & Lakshmi Problem you are solving: Homelessness and guidance for young adults leaving foster care in conjunction to support for aging community. The Good Mates solution to this challenge was to provide a platform that brings together 15-23 year old young adults and people at and above the pension age. The young assist the pensioners and receive accommodation and a work opportunity that’ll lead to a profession in health care.
  15. 15. BlendCo Yuki, Zara, Steve, LP & Engramar Problem you are solving: Prejudice on tenancy application for pre-crisis homelessness. The BlendCo solution to this challenge was to create a microfinance platform with single data repository.
