The Right Social Services Software Adds Protection in Child Welfare Cases

Posted by Mandy Frary on Mar 16, 2023 9:00:00 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.

Social Workers are Super Heroes

Posted by GVT Admin on Mar 16, 2023 8:00:00 AM

While doing some spring cleaning on the FAMCare Blog, I stumbled across this brief but excellent blog article from our very own Danielle Ritacco from March 2017.

Dr. Anna Scheyett, PhD, is the speaker, and this is her TED Talk about social workers. Dr. Scheyett's research, which she conducts as a professor at The University of Georgia, has focused on the needs of vulnerable populations. In this Ted Talk, she gives a succinct 7-minute summary of why social workers are superhumans. It's reassuring to know that some people recognized social workers as superheroes even before the pandemic that rocked social services to its core.

So Happy Social Worker Month.  Please enjoy this reposted TED Talk!

Solving the Difficulties of Refugee Databases

Posted by Dave Becker on Oct 22, 2019 8:18:00 AM

Refugees create unique issues for human services organizations, especially when it comes to creating and maintaining an accurate database to manage the care they need. One of the main things you find with onboarding the refugees into your database is the difficult nature of getting accurate data. It is hard to track that information and store that information and then to get your database to talk to other databases that data.

How Sharing Info Between Government Agencies Creates Better Outcomes

Posted by Dave Becker on Oct 7, 2019 7:45:00 AM

 

Government agencies in general tend to stay in their own siloes and be reluctant to share information. Some of it is agency caseworkers being too busy. Some of it is concerns about being HIPAA compliant. And some of it is a healthy paranoia about data security. The right government software solutions can alleviate much of those concerns.

For a nonprofit organization, gaining a better understanding of the data in their system can go a long way towards helping them achieve their mission. Why is data so important for nonprofit organizations? Ultimately, it all comes down to accountability.
