Hi all!  I am moving things forward to get a Block Connector program started in my neighborhood. I recently came across the following website that seems to detail a platform that was created for the purpose of block connecting. I'd like to learn more about it. I messaged the "contact" tab on the website but haven't heard back from anyone and I see that the website hasn't been updated since 2021 so I'm not sure if it's still a functioning site. Do you have any info. on this platform? If so, I'd love to learn more about it or any other platforms you may know of that can achieve the type of information collection and connecting that is needed for the Block Connector role. Thanks!

Welcome Brianne- I do not know of anyone using that site although I have seen it advertised before. Others use more of an open-ended approach. Have you connected with Howard Lawrence who runs the Block Connector program for the City of Edmonton Canada? I would suggest that would be a useful connection as they use a connecting card-

You could build an internal database similar to the block connector software too- as a fellow Wisconsinite I would be happy to chat about what that could look like.
