Streetlives is an organization driving systemic change toward an equitable and inclusive model for social services. Our core product is a crowdsourced online map of information for and from the homeless and vulnerable communities of New York City: a “Yelp for social services”.
Streetlives helps people navigate the patchwork of social services and matches people with the right services they need when they need them. Besides, it's a tool for the community to share their voice, to be heard, to influence outcomes.
As co-founder, my remit is strategic impact, creating the conditions for Streetlives’ vision to thrive: I focus on strategy, design research, product, and culture. As Director of Product, I lead a human-centered product development practice. My contributions to the project include hands-on UX work, and UX talent development, growing of a bootstrap pro-bono organization from 2 to 5 people, and a launching a community-led product.
Streetlives was shortlisted for the IxDA Award 2017 in the Empowering category and was selected to be presented at RadicalNetworks (2016) and Interaction18 (2018), the international interaction design conference.
