Pathways to Help
When someone takes the step to seek help, that's a transformative moment. Our responsibility is to build on that momentum with a search experience that's simple, fast, and relevant.
Curated by Humans, Not Bots
Data curation is our biggest investment. We have an in-house Data Operations team, based in Austin, Texas. They're dedicated to researching information, entering new programs, and creating an intuitive experience for Seekers.
Our Data Validation Process
We find programs through four main sources: proprietary software, our human Data Team, customers, and users across the country.
Our Data Entry Specialists make calls to programs, verify fields, and make it easy for Seekers to digest info quickly.
Optimize User Experience
Our Quality Control Specialists check program results to ensure they are following taxonomy and described clearly. Every published listing is reviewed by two (real) humans!
We've been refining our data operations for almost a decade and have built the best database out there, by far. And we're still going — we add hundreds of programs every day!
“We are teaching clients how to help themselves. It's a very valuable resource because it can be used right on the spot.”
