Four Great Years

It was nearly four years ago to the day that after having first heard about Code for America, I quickly dropped CfA’s Founder Jennifer Pahlka a note asking to be involved. Fascinated, I was hoping to volunteer for the summer after graduating before starting at Google that autumn. Needless to say, I never went to Google, and three months turned into nearly four years — it’s been a privilege.Back then, CfA was a bold idea, with a small team and tons of work to do. I remember first meeting Tim…See More

In the course of their research, they observed that many of the social services available (not just food pantries — but child care, legal counsel, various other programs that served the fundamental needs of the community) were not easy to find information about. They observed that everyone…
