BigBurgh tracks 170 free services for vulnerable populations
Since its debut last August, BigBurgh has provided a way for vulnerable and homeless populations in Pittsburgh to access various resources throughout the city. Now the app—actually a “mobile-optimized” web app that requires no downloading to use—is poised to grow in the next year.
BigBurgh offers a free, easy-to-use way to find information on more than 170 no-cost services throughout Pittsburgh, including clinics, shelters, food pantries and more. It also serves as a valuable tool for police, teachers, and other workers for when they recognize someone in need of assistance.
