CityRoof Enables User Reviews and Evaluations for Homeless Shelters and Food Banks
Date:12/13/2012

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 13, 2012

CityRoof (http://www.cityroof.org), a homeless social network that connects homeless people with services, has enabled its users to leave reviews on the website’s massive database of homeless shelters and food banks. This new feature will allow CityRoof’s users to judge the helpfulness and reliability of each shelter’s services by means of word of mouth, while also providing some insight on each facility’s resources.

CityRoof users can now rate food bank or shelters on a 5-star scale, and give written evaluations for each location as well. Each food bank or homeless shelter’s ranking will be the average score of every review. Users will additionally be able to judge the helpfulness of each review, and are also given the option to check in or upload photos of the facility.

“We created CityRoof to help aggregate homeless resources like food banks and shelters that don't have strong digital footprints,” Founder Andrew Conru said. “We are excited about allowing user reviews because it puts the accessibility of resources further in our users’ hands.”

CityRoof is a recently launched online social network where homeless and disadvantaged users everywhere can come together. Dedicated to improving the lives of the poor and homeless, CityRoof does this by maintaining a huge directory of accurate service listings and coordinating the efforts of the homeless and the organizations that support them. CityRoof ultimately hopes to give the homeless a voice by letting them know which of these services are the best and which should be avoided. It is a nonprofit company run in Seattle, Washington.
