Why did we build this app?

Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, we here at SOWN want to reduce social isolation so older adults can live independent, stable, fulfilling lives in their communities, and be vital supports to the grandchildren and adults in their care. The mobile app allows you to schedule time  

Who is the app for?

This is an app for Older Adults to join a community, connect with each other, access community resources, build digital literacy and skills, and attend SOWN community events in the greater Philadelphia region via phone, in-person sessions, individual counseling, educational workshops, and resource referrals.  

How do I create an account?

If you are interested in volunteering with SOWN, go to the App Store or Google Play on your mobile device and type “SOWN” in the search bar. Once you’ve found the app, click on it, and start downloading. From there, open the app and create your very own account to get started! 

How is the app used?
