Featured Code for NC project

NC Reentry Resources Hub: A Journey From 1 to 100 Counties

The purpose of the NC Reentry Resources Hub project is to provide high-quality information resources relevant and valuable to NC citizens reentering society after a period of incarceration or dealing with collateral consequences of a previous criminal conviction.

In this talk, we will share the journey from the project’s origin as a Code for Asheville project targeting Buncombe County to a distributed collaboration between Code for Greensboro and Code for Asheville (so far) to bring this resource to all 100 North Carolina counties, including our approach to ensuring the sustainability of the project.

Other projects

There are three projects Code for Raleigh is preparing in partnership with Wake County for this hackathon:

• Parks and Rec park finder – an app to find all the parks and greenways across the Triangle, including programs and amenities in all municipalities

• Not just a flu-shot finder – an app to where you can search for where to get flu shots and expanding the capabilities to include other health-related needs such as finding narcan and prescription drop-off locations

• Business development diversity accelerator – looking at ways to help minority and under-represented people turn their business ideas into actual businesses by providing resources to streamline the business-creation process
