The SSS mobile app was developed by Kimone Smith, the Founder & CEO of T.U.L.S.A. Inc. The purpose of the app is to promote social equity, individual quality of life and crime reduction (particularly crime related to a social need). SSS connects people to the resources people need to solve the problems they face right now. Before bad decision-making, crisis or crime.
SSS app, is a digital directory built with geocodng and GPS, which enables the public to access free social support service at one’s fingertips. End-user's can access free social support service in the following categories: (1) food, (2) housing, (3) clothing, (4) education & job-readiness, (5) professional services (legal, financial, etc), (6) mental health & wellness and (7) crisis intervention.
We create a pipeline of access to resources, which allows people the opportunity to connect to the service they need, to solve the problems they face. Research suggests, "poverty yields a set of socioeconomic stressors that threatens familial health and well-being, such as scarce resources, community violence, vandalism, crime, unstable housing, unemployment, even, food insecurity" (Slopen, Fitzmaurice, Williams & Gilman, 2010). Ninety-five percent of Americans have cell phones and over 30 million Americans live in poverty. SSS, leverages data and technology to help people overcome the social barriers they may be facing, at the convenience of their fingertips.
We believe that help is not always in the form of monetary funds, but, social capital, social service or a simple opportunity. The SSS app connects people to local service providers. In return community organizations, are connected to untapped populations and prospective clients.
Currently partnered with Teamwork Englewood's Re-entry Support Center, clients are introduced to the SSS app as a personal tool to connect to services specific to individual needs.
