Steelers cornerback William Gay made a Domestic Violence app “RUSafe”
Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay is working with a women’s shelter to promote the national debut of a mobile app designed to help victims of domestic violence.
The “RUSafe” app has been available in Pittsburgh for several months and will be made available nationally on iPhones and Androids beginning Nov. 1.
The free app, designed by the Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, gives users a brief questionnaire and uses GPS technology to help the user locate the nearest domestic violence hotline or 911.
The app has already been used 1,000 times and helped more than 20 victims in Pittsburgh get the help they need.
