On May 12, 2022, HelpSeeker is welcoming all Service Providers in Canada to join the first live demo of the newly launched Karto. A first-of-its kind platform, Karto lifts the lid on the increasingly complex network of organizations, services, and programs that are working hard to support community wellbeing and safety.
Leveraging a live digital inventory of over 100,000 social support listings across Canada, a 6.2 million word dataset, and search data from the HelpSeeker Navigation Platform, Karto is a powerful and cost-effective tool to help service providers plan, advocate, and navigate.
Karto will help you answer:
+ Which types of services are more common in my city versus others?
+ Which populations are the organizations serving?
+ Where might there be service duplication? Gaps?
+ Which organizations are providing which services?
+ What kind of supports are people looking for in my city and in specific neighbourhoods?
And we’re just getting started! We are building with, and for you, so that we can accelerate social change together.
Join us on May 12.
In this webinar, you will learn:
How Karto works in practical application
Learn more about innovations in social supply mapping
View features we are exploring for Karto and how they can impact your organization
Provide feedback on what you'd like to see next with Karto
