Social Solutions: Supporting Those Who Support the Vulnerable

Leaders of nonprofit, public organizations and government agencies are familiar with doing more with less, but the unique threats of this COVID-19 crisis on lives and livelihoods are especially challenging. Across the U.S., communities face increased homelessness, unemployment, job instability and food shortages. To address the impacts of COVID-19, Social Solutions is offering its software to public and nonprofit sector organizations for free for the rest of 2020 when they sign a new contract.

The impacts of Social Solutions software on human services is far-reaching. The software helps workforce development programs manage the influx of applications as a result of job loss from the pandemic. Meanwhile, with homeless shelters grappling with social distancing, supply chain slowdowns and increases in homelessness, the Company’s solutions can help to forecast the need and availability of beds, quarantine space and food.
