Needs Assessment:

Social service providers are working hard day in and day out to create change.  Within communities, within families, and within individuals. Organizations that provide social services use a variety of information technology in order to make their service delivery more efficient, consistent and effective.  Yet, social services are still lacking in the resources and time that is needed to create desired changes.

Solutions/Progress:

Tech4Community is always searching for technologies, mainly online tools and mobile apps, that could improve social services and the lives of those who receive them.  With the goal of increasing the impact of already existing social services, the Tech4SocialWork Resource Hub is a guide to online tools and mobile apps for social workers or anyone providing social services.  The hope for this hub is that it will open an even bigger discussion.  A discussion of how technology and behavior change can interact.

In hopes of providing the best list of tech options, the Tech4Community team is now in the process of reviewing a variety of online tools and mobile apps.  Check back soon for tech resources!
