Get To Know Us

From the Founder:

"Give + Share software was inspired by my own personal journey with poverty and homelessness as a youth exiting the child welfare system. I had to become very resourceful in order to survive and learn to navigate community resources. Many fall through the cracks and in a nation with so many resources and amazing programs available I felt it was necessary to create a system to help those who need to access valuable resources while streamlining discombobulated outdated structures that can be complex to navigate especially when in a crisis. Give + Share simplifies and expedites service requests while saving time and money".
