Happy Friday!


We’re off to San Francisco on Monday for the first week of the Code for America Accelerator. So this week, we’re paying homage to the awesome companies that came before us in the accelerator’s inaugural class.

Aunt Bertha

Aunt Bertha picks up where Uncle Sam left off by simplifying the search and application process for social services.

Measured Voice

Measured Voice (MV) is a web-based social media management system (SMMS) designed to help government organizations create, publish, and measure social media content. Measured Voice helps users manage multiple social media accounts, enact publishing workflow, delineate team roles, and measure results and team performance through a simple interface.

Recovers is a toolkit for community powered disaster recovery. The disaster response platform at [townname].recovers.org incorporates searchable databases, social media aggregation, and mobile tools, allowing grassroots organizers to efficiently marshal resources in their area.
