Identifying the problem

We conducted background research and an interview with the director of the P.E.A.C.E. Initiative, she was able to provide us with valueable information about creating a products others will benefit from.  We learned their current site targets all people from men women, teens, adults, children, and elders.  Bexar county is one of the most dangerous places for women and children when it comes to domestic violence.  Their goal is to have the ability to educate the community on domestic violence and that is affects all types of communities, people, and groups.  

User Insight

We discovered there are not many resources readily available for victims of domestic abuse.

We felt if victims felt they had a safe place for support, it will help prevent others from being trapped in domestic situations.

We discoved through research creating a mobile app will help victims during an emergency situation. 


From information we gathered from our stakeholder interview we were able to complete out ideation process.  Utilizing the I like, I wish, what  if, and dot voting method.


Helped us to better illustrate findings during our research of what a potential domestic situation looks like to users.
