Improving Access to Social Services

For many people in our Bay Area community, social services are a critical safety net. However, trying to find these services across multiple provider directories is difficult and frustrating. Benetech Service Net is an open standards data exchange platform that makes it easier to share and maintain information on local social services.

These critical services can include food, shelter, healthcare, immigration, job training, legal, and family support services. Together with our partners and supporters that include Kaiser Permanente, United Way Bay Area, San Mateo County and California Health and Human Services among others, we’re making it easier to find and access services people need, decrease costs to manage data, and help inform social service analysis and decision making.
