Single Stop harnesses America's most effective anti-poverty tools to create economic mobility for low-income families and individuals.
Founded in 2007, Single Stop's unique capacity for impact has grown, earning Single Stop the title "the Amazon.com" of social services. The model has received numerous distinctions, recently being hailed as one of New York Times' "Big Ideas in Social Change" and "The World's Top Ten Most Innovative Companies in Social Good" by Fast Company in 2015.
To achieve this, Single Stop provides community-based organizations (CBOs) and community colleges with training, evaluation, program support, change management consulting, and proprietary technology. These tools empower sites to provide low-income families with wraparound services that include benefits screening, application assistance, case management, tax preparation, and legal and financial counseling. Through a unique one-stop shop, Single Stop provides coordinated access to a safety net worth $750 billion and services provided by 1.5 million nonprofits—connecting people to the resources they need to attain higher education, obtain good jobs, and achieve financial self-sufficiency.
