How Social Services Software Helps Your Nonprofit Provide Food and Shelter

Posted by GVT Admin on Jun 18, 2019 6:45:00 AM

Despite low unemployment rates and a fairly strong economy, the number of homeless and food insecure continue to rise. According to the recently released State of the Homeless 2019 report, as of January, in New York City alone, an all-time record number (63,839) of men, women and children slept in shelters each night. And, according to Feeding America, 40-million people struggle with hunger in the U.S., including more than 12-million children.

If you run a shelter or food bank, chances are you have more to do and more to process every day. That’s where having the right social services software can help you focus more on providing food and shelter and less on paperwork and processes.

If your performance is lacking, it could mess up someone’s life or even end it. That's the mindset that leads to social worker performance anxiety.

Thoughts on the Family First Prevention Services Act

Posted by GVT Admin on Apr 3, 2019 11:44:54 AM

About a year ago, President Trump signed the Family First Prevention Service Act into law. Social workers engaged in child and family care praised the legislation as the first “prevention” measure to help keep children safely with their families and avoid the traumatic experience of entering foster care. The act emphasized the importance of children growing up in families and helps ensure children are placed in the least restrictive, most family-like setting appropriate to their special needs when foster care is needed.

Posted by GVT Admin on Mar 20, 2019 11:39:41 AM

The mission of Catholic charities is to provide service to people in need, to advocate for justice in social structures and to call the entire church and other people of good will to do the same.

How the Right Social Services Software Adds Protection in Child Welfare Cases

Posted by Mandy Frary on Mar 14, 2019 7:15:00 AM

How we care for the most vulnerable among us is one of the great challenges of our time. As Mahatma Ghandi once said, “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.” And social workers are hard-pressed to find one group in more dire need of urgent attention than children at risk of neglect or abuse.
