WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that our communities already have the assets needed to create the change we seek, and creating technology-based tools that make these assets more efficient is a faster way to create change than by starting new programs.

WHAT WE ARE

A community of good people using innovation to reduce some of the world’s largest civic disproportionalities

CIVIC DISPROPORTIONALITIES WE REDUCE

We start where the greatest needs exist. Our purpose is to actively seek out large disproportionatelities, and solve them:

ECONOMIC

Economic challenges cause many of the world's other problems. Examples are workforce development and gentrification economic inclusion.

EDUCATION

Closely linked with economic challenges, education challenges include increasing math and reading scores,.

HEALTH

Public Health challenges include heart disease and stroke, prescription drug overdose, and HIV.

SAFETY

Safety issues include, but are not limited to, gun violence, anti-recidivism, criminal justice, and care for the mentally ill

OUR MISSION

We train and support all people to play a role within a civic engagement framework for the development of technology tools.

OUR 2018 MISSION: #HACKHEALTH
