Our Impact

Millions of people struggling to pay for food, housing, and healthcare are eligible for assistance but don’t know it or are deterred by the complicated enrollment process. We use private-sector strategies to reduce poverty by using data, targeted outreach, policy change, and new technologies to proactively connect people to benefits and services. Since 2005, we’ve submitted over 800,000 applications and secured over $7 billion in benefits and services that help individuals and families reach financial stability.
