Why did we build this app?
SOWN wants to foster social connections so older adults can live independent, fulfilling lives in their communities and be vital supports to the grandchildren and adults in their care. Our mobile app, SOWN Connect, brings together our participants, staff, and community partners.
Who is the app for?
This is an app for our GrandFamily Resource Center (GFRC) participants, community partners, and any individual or organization who would like to connect with us. SOWN Connect allows GFRC participants to support and encourage each other, give feedback to staff, access community resources, build digital literacy and skills, and keep up to date on SOWN groups and special events. Our community partners can share info about special events and resources, or contact SOWN staff with questions.
How do I create an account?
If you are interested in connecting with SOWN, go to the App Store or Google Play on your mobile device and type “SOWN Connect” 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?
