A Better Tent City (ABTC), a non-profit organization based in Kitchener Waterloo, provides a safer alternative for individuals experiencing homelessness, accommodating up to 50 residents. Operating solely on donations and housing allowances, ABTC partners with organizations like the Foodbank to offer essential services such as showers, health care, and meals. Founded in April 2020 through collaborative efforts, ABTC prioritizes moving individuals from dangerous street conditions to a more secure and supportive community setting.

The Problem

Currently, ABTC relies on Google Sheets to manage volunteers, but this approach is proving to be increasingly disorganized as the organization grows. As the number of volunteers is expanding, the limitations of the current system are becoming more apparent, prompting the need for a more efficient and streamlined solution. 

The Solution

We aim to address this challenge by developing a scalable web dashboard designed to optimize volunteer-admin communication. This solution will enhance volunteer scheduling, tracking, organization, and management, providing ABTC with a more efficient and effective system for coordinating its volunteer workforce.

Preliminary Designs
