The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has launched a new contest to help the people who help the homeless. Project REACH (Real-time Electronic Access for Caregivers and the Homeless) challenges the developer community to create easy, mobile access to resources that the homeless need. The contest will be conducted in two phases. Finalists will be judged primarily on their ability to dynamically update information about housing and shelter near JBJ Soul Kitchen (http://www.jbjsoulkitchen.org/). For more information and basic performance criteria, visit the Challenge.gov website at http://reachthehomeless.challenge.gov/.
