Place Matters App Development

Scattergood Foundation
Organization Overview: 

The Scattergood Foundation’s vision is to “be Thomas Scattergood” for the twenty-first century, seeking opportunities for productive dialogue and learning within the behavioral health field; and activating leadership and collaborative endeavors by awarding targeted grants to address important behavioral health needs in innovative ways.

Place Matters

In 2016, the Scattergood Foundation published a report, Place Matters: Perceived neighborhood safety and social support during childhood and its impact on mental health in Philadelphia – a GIS analysis of children’s population health needs and resources. Last year, a Fels student created a mobile app based on this published report. Now that the app has been created, there are additional featured that Fels student(s) can include to enhance the app's reach.
