The Société de Développement Social and the Quartier de l’innovation launched Reconnect, the first secure storage and sharing platform will help make life easier for homeless people.
Reconnect is an online platform that makes it possible for people living in highly precarious situations to store essential information digitally and simplify their day-to-day life. Some of the main features users will be able to access on their account include storage for important documents, an address book, a calendar for appointments with SMS reminders, and notes.
Developed in partnership with community organizations, the Reconnect platform is adapted to each user’s degree of autonomy and allows the social worker to provide more or less assistance as required, while ensuring data security and confidentiality. If they wish, users can set up their account so they alone can access it.
In addition to Benedict Labre House, St. Michael’s Mission, the Sac à dos and two other organizations working with homeless people will also become Reconnect centres, so that a maximum number of users can access this free service.
