Microsoft has officially ended the support of Internet Explorer Version 10 as of February 11, 2020. Though it will continue supporting Internet Explorer Version 11 for a while, Microsoft is encouraging its users to transition to Edge as soon as possible. While the actual FAMCare and ClinicalPURSUIT products continue to run well in Internet Explorer, some third party add-ons are starting to drop support, and this includes our Help Desk link. If you use Internet Explorer for FAMCare, you will not be able to connect directly to the help desk unless you logout and login with a different browser.

The modern era of nonprofit marketing began more than 25 years ago when nonprofits realized that without a website they were virtually out of business. Everyone went out immediately and launched a website.
The universe of social services is populated with heroes.
