The Refugee Center (RCO) is a U.S. organisation that help refugees arriving in the US to find the information they need to transition to life in The States.

To help their users find local resources near to them, they wanted to develop a map-based “resource finder” application that could be accessed online as well as via the popular app stores. This app would be populated by their existing large database of US-based resources. On the user side, it needed to be easy to use, location-aware and friendly. On the backend, it needed to be a single codebase that could be deployed to both web and mobile - no easy feat!

We helped them achieve this by developing a completely bespoke Ionic application powered by a Geo-friendly Django backend.
