SIMPLE SOLUTIONS

to complex community challenges?

Communities across the country face enormous complex challenges — poverty, hunger, homelessness, health disparities, and more. But there is hope!

For over a decade, our community impact solutions have proven to help communities learn how to increase communication and cooperation among all their helping agencies. This enables them to combine their strengths and collectively tackle tough challenges together.

By creating empowering Resource Networks, agencies are better able to work together more efficiently and effectively, make multi-sector collaboration simpler, and measure outcomes and impact.

Today, thousands of helping agencies — including nonprofits, churches, schools, food banks, hospitals, and government use our low-cost, simple-to-use tools to connect and better serve their communities, together. 

They are providing stronger support for individuals and families who strive to live healthier, more productive, and meaningful lives.

About Us

We're Here to Help

All of us at Simon Solutions truly care about community — its people, potential, and possibilities.

We believe that everyone in a community should be given the opportunity to thrive physically, emotionally, educationally, financially, socially, and spiritually. 

And, local communities should have the resources and skills necessary to help people achieve stability and success — if those resources are used wisely, creatively and collaboratively.

We know the work is hard.

Most helping agencies struggle to maintain a constant flow of resources to sustain and advance their missions. Most cannot keep pace with the increased demand for services, forcing them to do more…with less. Also, people's needs are becoming more complex and beyond the scope of most agencies; which oftentimes, are vastly disconnected and don't talk to each other.

Resource gaps can result in children, youth and adults going without access to effective and transformational programs and services. Through our multi-sector collaborative work with poverty experts and practitioners, we strive to change all that. We hope to reduce the complexity of helping those in need by making it easier and more effective for any person, group, or organization to do their part in preventing and alleviating poverty — in all its forms.

We hear it all across the country that "now is the time" for neighbor, churches, charities, businesses, elected officials, and others to come together to...

  • increase communication, cooperation, and resourcefulness in our communities.
  • organize forums that help everyone better understand people's needs.
  • implement lasting solutions through multi-sector collaboration and collective impact.
Realizing these hopes and dreams may be as simple as ramping up our faith/goodwill and shifting our community conversations from what's wrong, and how to we fix it — to what's possible, and who cares enough to act?

Care Networking Makes the Difference

We provide more efficient and effective ways for agencies to keep track of the people and families they serve, while connecting agencies with one another.

By creating community-wide systems of referrals, communication, and case-management, helping agencies are better able to find and coordinate resources, because they are doing their work together, COLLECTIVELY making an impact.

By increasing networking and connectivity, communities are becoming more resourceful by reducing duplication. And, they are becoming more responsive by making better-informed decisions as how to allocate limited resources where they are most needed.

Care Networking holds great promise for transforming community-wide "helping systems" from a social service to a social change model — which can make a real and lasting difference in people's lives.

This model is driven by transformative processes that are deeply embedded with caregiving (not just service-providing). These processes are empowered by meaningful relationships and self-motivation.

And with real-time networking technology, these processes can be constantly monitored for progress, accurately measured for success, and easily adjusted for effectiveness.

Technology & Capacity Building

Through simple, secure web applications, called CharityTracker and Oasis Insight, multiple helping agencies are able to:

  • connect and coordinate, saving time and money by reducing duplication of efforts.
  • share data and case management, while maintaining autonomy and various levels of privacy.
  • produce agency and community-wide reports to increase their funding and measure results.
  • track a person's progress in moving from crisis to sustainability.

Through capacity-building resources, such as Webinars and Case Studies, we advance community collaboration and transformation across the United States. We connect innovative leaders to one another to:

  • share best practices.
  • teach new uses of technology, data and reporting.
  • introduce new models of empowerment leading to individual and community transformation.
Our simple-to-use, cost-effective tools increase communication and cooperation among all helping agencies. 
This makes it easier for them to work together more efficiently and effectively to address complex community challenges including:
  • Combat poverty, hunger, and homelessness
  • Improve community health
  • Stop human trafficking
  • Improve disaster preparedness and response
  • Transform lives and communities
