The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) today joined JBJ Soul Foundation Chairman Jon Bon Jovi to announce the five finalists of Project REACH (Real-time Electronic Access for Caregivers and the Homeless) during the Health Data Initiative Forum. The developer challenge was launched last March by the VA, in collaboration with the departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, which operates the JBJ Soul Kitchen - the community restaurant in Monmouth County, N.J., where competing apps will now be tested. The Project REACH developer challenge called for an online and web application that would provide real-time info to connect service providers who aid the homeless.
