The challenges of preventing and alleviating poverty are complex. Communities across the country face enormous present and future challenges, but there is hope!
For over a decade, our community impact solutions have proven to help communities learn how to increase cooperation among all of their helping agencies, make multi-sector collaboration simpler, and measure outcomes and impact.
Today, thousands of helping agencies — including nonprofits, churches, schools, food banks, hospitals, and government use our low-cost, simple-to-use tools to connect and better serve their communities, together.
Now supported by well-connected Care Networks, individuals and families have a chance to live healthier, more productive, and meaningful lives.
All of us at Simon Solutions truly care about community — its people, potential, and possibilities.
We believe that everyone in a community should be given the opportunity to thrive physically, emotionally, educationally, financially, socially, and spiritually.
And, local communities should have the resources and skills necessary to help people achieve stability and success — if those resources are used wisely, creatively and collaboratively.
We know the work is hard.
Most helping agencies struggle to maintain a constant flow of resources to sustain and advance their missions. Most cannot keep pace with the increased demand for services, forcing them to do more…with less. Also, people's needs are becoming more complex and beyond the scope of most agencies; which oftentimes, are vastly disconnected and don't talk to each other.
Resource gaps can result in children, youth and adults going without access to effective and transformational programs and services. Through our collaborative work with poverty experts and practitioners, we strive to change all that. We hope to reduce the complexity of helping those in need by making it easier and more effective for any person, group, or organization to do their part in preventing and alleviating poverty — in all its forms.
We provide more efficient and effective ways for agencies to keep track of the people and families they serve, while connecting agencies with one another.
By creating community-wide systems of referrals, communication, and case-management, helping agencies are better able to find and coordinate resources, because they are doing their work together, COLLECTIVELY making an impact.
By increasing networking and connectivity, communities are becoming more resourceful by reducing duplication. And, they are becoming more responsive by making better-informed decisions as how to allocate limited resources where they are most needed.
Through simple, secure web applications, called CharityTracker and Oasis Insight, multiple helping agencies are able to:
Through capacity-building resources, such as Webinars and Case Studies, we advance community collaboration and transformation across the United States. We connect innovative leaders to one another to:
Our Simon Solutions team uses our unique and collective community experiences, passion for people and problem-solving, as well as technology development skills, to co-create tools that assist the charitable work of any agency, church, organization or group of agencies.
What do we mean by co-create? We carefully listen to our current users, as well as examine best practices and innovations to continually improve and expand our tools to meet our users’ needs. We don’t develop tools in a vacuum. Helping agencies inspire and inform our work every single day! We see every customer service interaction as an opportunity to serve, grow and learn.
