Online Guide to Donating and Volunteering in Boston Area Shelters and Food Service Programs
The online version preserves the two main features of the Third Edition.
There are four important differences, however.
- A brief table with the name of the organization and the services provided, clients accepted, donations needed, and location.
- Individual program entries with address, telephone, and details of services provided.
- The online version can be searched to find programs in given locations and with desired services.
- The online version has links to the programs' web sites. For those without a web page, Shawmut Education will create a page and provide trainees who will help organizations design and maintain their pages.
- The online version can be updated easily over the web, with individual passwords that allow participating organizations to edit their own entries and keep their information current in the future.
- We plan to expand the online version to include service providers throughout the Commonwealth, and someday service providers nationwide.
The goal of the online version is to provide a tool for social workers and agency professionals who are trying to locate services for the homeless. We welcome criticisms and suggestions to make the Online Guide more useful, usable, and used. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
