Featured Project

Atar is the first AI-Powered, Virtual Advocacy Platform, that understands needs, determines eligbility and walks users step-by-step through everything they need to access social and other services.

We built Atar with the UNHCR in Montreal for refugees, but are now adapting the platform to support communities disproportionally impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in partnership with Mount Sinai Health System and community organizations in NYC.


Our mission is to help people help themselves through collective and artificial intelligence.

In many ways we stumbled on our work by chance. Little did I know that not long after I moved from Somerville to Montréal to teach and do research I would have four relatives from Eritrea seeking asylum in Canada.

And it was while volunteering at a local shelter that my relatives were sent to when they first arrived, that we saw first hand how much effort and coordination resettlement requires. Not too long after relocating to New York, we began to see alot of the same opportunities to support communities disproportionally impact by COVID-19.

We started Edel Technologies to support social service providers and help them leverage, data, analytics, apps, and artificial intelligence to improve their service delivery capacity and effectiveness.

But what’s most important to us, is that our solutions restore the dignity that many loose waiting for help by giving them the information and resources they need to help themselves.
