Iterative Feedback

Our project leads stay are consistently in touch with your nonprofit's point of contact to navigate decisions, clarify goals, and respond to feedback.

For the last few semesters, the New American Welcome Center has been working with Hack4Impact to create a virtual resource navigation site called Oasis, which is specifically made to house a lot of information in regards to resources and services for immigrants and refugees in our community. We have been working really tirelessly with Hack4Impact to make sure that we are collecting as much information that we can from the community, from our staff, from our clients to make sure that this resource navigation site is accessible and is addressing the needs that they are facing. We are really really excited in the progress that we have made, and we think that we are in such a great place in terms of our community once we’re able to launch oasis. It’s all thanks to the hard work that the students in Hack4Impact have put in and all of our clients who are going to be looking forward to this service and to be able to have this available at our community. We’re really really thankful to have been able to build a long-standing partnership with Hack4Impact and for the impact that we know they’re gonna have in our community.

How We Work

At Hack4Impact, we develop software for nonprofits to make their work more efficient, effective, and far-reaching. Generally, we set up a call with potential nonprofit partners to learn more about their initiatives and goals. If our goals align, we delve deeper into project specifications, pain points, and user research before confirming the project and matching a development team. We aim to build sustainable products with long-lasting impact for nonprofits and those they are trying to help.
