Additionally, if someone you know is in an abusive relationship—or if that someone is you—the Help Section of the application contains complete resources for victims of domestic violence, as well as a way to get help when you need it.
This app does not serve as a replacement for emergency services—in any situation where you feel that you may be at risk, please dial 911 or your local emergency number.
However, this app can be used by every Grenadian, as it provides quick access to all emergency services; access to the approved list of hurricane shelters in your area; (available from the "Hurricane Updates" tab); and soon users will be able to recieve automatic hurricane updates whenever there is a severe weather condiion looming.

With Circle of 6 you have a new way to connect with your most trusted friends- to stay close, stay safe and prevent violence before it happens! It's the mobile way to look out for your friends - on campus or when you're out for the night.
Circle of 6 lets you choose six trusted friends to add to your circle. If you get into an uncomfortable or risky situation, use Circle of 6 to automatically send your circle a pre-programmed SMS alert message, with your exact location. It’s quick. It’s discreet. Two taps on your iPhone is all it takes.

Range is a mobile app that locates the time and place where free meals are served this summer.
*Update 9/12/14: Range is useful during the summer months only (May-August). Data for summer 2015 will begin to be uploaded in May 2015. If you’ve used Range, please take a few moments to let us know how you used it: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/B72DGR9
During the school year, youth get daily meals at the school cafeteria, but during the summer months only 1 in 6 who eat lunch at school take advantage of free programs when school is out. Government agencies, schools, nonprofits, and community members are working hard to promote the programs that feed youth during the summer. Range is part of that effort.
If you work with youth or interact with families in need, use Range to increase visibility to the neighborhood sites that provide this crucial service. Summer meal programs provide free lunches to kids 18 and under in your community when school is out. Tell others about Range —librarians, clergy, social workers, physicians, parks and rec counselors—and how they can help families find free meals this summer.
Data from WhyHunger.org, a database of federal and grassroots nutrition programs, powers Range to locate reliable sources of healthy and free meals. We believe putting this app in the hands of many will increase the numbers of youth who are fed.
Download Range to locate the nearest sites serving free meals, and use the app to get directions, share information via text or email, and learn about key services the site offers.
Here’s how 4Bells works:
1. For the requesting group or organization
• The organization or group signs up for an account via the app, including establishing a series of criteria or categories for their volunteers.
• They instruct volunteers to download the app and connect using a specified connection code.
• Once they have connected volunteers, the organization can send out opportunity alerts for specific tasks that the volunteers can review and consider claiming by logging in to the app and viewing additional details (e.g., location, specific time requirements) added by the organization.
• Organizations can track the status of tasks (e.g., claimed, completed, returned) and resend an opportunity alert if needed.
2. For the volunteer
• Once the volunteer has been trained and accepted by the organization, they receive a connection code from the organization. At that point, the volunteer can download the app and use the code to connect to the organization.
• The volunteer signs up to receive appropriate volunteer opportunity alerts based on their skill and engagement level.
• When the organization sends an opportunity alert, the volunteer receives a push or text message that there is an opportunity to volunteer.
• They can log in to the app to view additional details and can then decline, claim, or sign-up as an alternate for the volunteer opportunity.
• When they complete the task, they can mark the opportunity as completed.
• If they are unable to complete the opportunity, they can return it and notify the organization or group that another volunteer is needed.
