“I work with military active duty, veterans, retirees, and widows. I can now readily assist a client with up-to-date, accurate information for them to follow up with. In some cases, where the client has no computer access, I can easily walk them through the process of obtaining critical information for them.”

“Aunt Bertha is so easy to use, promoting self-service. It doesn’t require a navigator or any middle man, which is important for students who want to find resources directly, in real-time. A good number of our students are returning visitors, made easy by the single-sign-on feature which encourages them to get help without having to log in again.”

Jodie Beatty
Vice Chancellor for Student Success

“A major part of what they did with us was that they flew In to our location and did two onsite training workshops with our nonprofit partners. That was VERY helpful from a momentum perspective. It was a big push project for us to be able to talk up how much they invest to make sure that we are able to support our nonprofit partners.”

Hilary Maynard
Community Resource Coordinator

“Aunt Bertha is an essential tool for Redwood Community Health Coalition and our member health centers to strengthen community and clinical linkages and advance health equity by prioritizing populations that experience the greatest disparities. We are thankful to the entire Aunt Bertha team for their support with not only the technical implementation but also the community engagement support and ongoing collaboration to grow the network.”

Our Story

Our founder’s mother was diagnosed with a rare brain disease at 47. When he became responsible for her care he found out just how difficult it was to find and access social care. In 2010 he founded Aunt Bertha to make it easy for people to search for help and find nonprofits and programs that serve them.

To do this, we’ve verified and added hundreds of thousands of programs covering every county in the US. In the process, we’ve built tools to support helpers and partnered with customers to build social care programs in their organizations.

Who uses Aunt Bertha?
