Vome was created in order to promote volunteering and to address the inefficiencies and inconveniences associated with community involvement. We noticed that for some reason, it was too difficult for organizations to find volunteers and too difficult for the average person to find an engaging community service opportunity that meshed well with their schedule and interests. The common cause that we identified for both of these issues is the absence of a simple-to-use, online interface that seamlessly connects organizations with volunteers.
