ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Joy Junction, New Mexico’s largest emergency shelter, in collaboration with award winning local app development company, SDI-APPS has released a new app available on iTunes, Google play and Blackberry Market.
Joy Junction Founder and CEO Dr. Jeremy Reynalds said he is very excited about the new app, because it provides yet another way for Joy Junction to tell the homeless story, an avenue to which Reynalds is passionately committed.
“We live in a technological age, and we are making every attempt to harness that technology to let people know the plight of the ever increasing number of homeless people,” Reynalds said.
Some of the app features include: general information about Joy Junction, the ability to easily make Paypal donations to the shelter, volunteer, a direct number dial to Joy Junction’s main office, GPS location feature to map directions and links to external resources.
Sue Jiron, Founder-CEO of SDI-Apps, which provided the app for Joy Junction, said, “We are deeply committed to the Joy Junction cause and all they do to help those in our community. Bringing the mobile apps capabilities to those wanting to support them has been a rewarding experience, and we are confident the app user will find it to be a simple process.”
Reynalds added, “I am appreciative for the commitment of SDI, and what this app allows us to do. By leveraging the rapidly expanding app market, we are making it easier for our supporters to help us continue our mission of mercy and better provide for those who are often overlooked.”
SDI has also released an app for Albuquerque’s Grace Church. The app provides users access to events, announcements, public and private prayer requests, as well as the ability to volunteer and donate in the safe app environment.
Jiron said, “I applaud Joy Junction and Grace Church for embracing the new technology. Their forward thinking will allow a level of engagement that will be widely embraced by supporters and members. We are in a rapidly changing environment where consumers have come to expect immediate access to places they connect with. The Joy Junction and Grace Church apps answer that call.”
