Helping people today, modernizing benefits access for tomorrow

Today, more than $80 billion in food, financial aid, healthcare, and other assistance goes untapped. We are committed to closing that gap to reduce hunger and poverty, and build pathways to economic mobility.

Individual Assistance

Every person should easily receive assistance they are eligible for when they need it. To achieve that, we provide data-driven outreach, online tools, and support in applying over the phone to efficiently connect people to public benefits.

Healthcare Solutions

Healthcare entities have a unique opportunity to connect people to benefits that improve health and reduce unnecessary costs. We work with health plans, integrated delivery networks, and other healthcare partners to help their members and patients access assistance programs with ease.

Public Policy & Practice Change

Too often, assistance programs are burdensome for families to access and for government agencies to administer. We help government leaders test and adopt policy and practice solutions that bring more equity and efficiency to benefits access.
