For Mission: Launch, it’s time to build technology that can help Baltimore citizens returning from prison.
The organization held the first part of its Rebuilding Re-entry Hackathon in February to look at data and generate ideas. On Saturday, June 18, a second daylong event at Impact Hub in Station North will focus on producing prototypes from those ideas, and getting them online.
“Moving the ideas of some of Baltimore’s recently released residents is critical to what we do and what is needed to rebuild the process of coming back home,” said Laurin Hodge, executive director of Mission: Launch. The organization is partnering with Baltimore’s City Accelerator program for the event.
According to Mission: Launch, the specific focus areas for projects identified at the February event include:
- Family reunification services
- Probation/parole guidance
- Vital records/state ID provision
- Peer mentorship
- Anti-stigma efforts
The community is invited to join the stakeholders and recently released residents who are set to participate. Participants aren’t required to know how to code, but it’s a plus.-30-
