ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 24, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Joy Junction, New Mexico's largest emergency shelter, in collaboration with Dezine Studios, has released an app for Android devices.
Joy Junction Founder and CEO Dr. Jeremy Reynalds said he is very excited about the new app, because it provides yet another way for Joy Junction to tell the homeless story, an avenue to which Reynalds is passionately committed.
"We live in a technological age, and we are making every attempt to harness that technology to let people know the plight of the ever increasing number of homeless people," Reynalds said.
Some of the app features include: general information about Joy Junction, the ability to make Paypal donations to the shelter, Dollar Days wish list ordering, a direct number dial to Joy Junction's main office, GPS location feature to map directions and links to external resources.
Dezine Studios, which gifted the app to Joy Junction, said, "Helping to expand the reach of Joy Junction via a mobile application strengthens their ability to provide services to a growing, under-represented population. We are proud to help them in this endeavor."
Reynalds added, "I am so grateful for the generosity of Dezine Studios and what this app allows us to do. By leveraging the rapidly expanding Android market, we are making it easier for our supporters to help us continue our mission of mercy and better provide for a those who are often overlooked."
Dezine Studios has committed to produce an iPhone application for Joy Junction, due out in the coming months.
