I participated in #HACKFOSTERCARE hosted by ACS. Social workers have trouble accessing documents outside of their office, so carry stacks of papers to access them when they meet foster kids at their homes. A huge pain. The opportunity here is to access information without cutting trees.
A mobile app that social workers can access their visiting dates, access kids information, and send medical documents to foster parents.
A workflow for finding a child and their medical documents.
A mobile app for interested parents to view and search for kids to adopt. This is a separate app from Fostership Portal.

A quick, intuitive process to find kids through criteria-based search. Parents can also find by bios and hobbies.
