Baltimore, MD; Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
Social Solutions Global, Inc., the leading provider of performance management software for human services organizations, and the Alliance for Children and Families, a national membership organization dedicated to achieving a vision of a healthy society and strong communities for all children, adults, and families, today announced a strategic partnership to promote performance-driven and data-informed practice among human service providers.
Through the partnership, the Alliance and Social Solutions will grow a community of practice around outcomes measurement and performance management for nonprofit, child- and family-service providers. The partnership will build upon the already substantial body of resources, such as webinars, conference presentations, and white papers, the two organizations have collaborated on in the past to promote proven-best practices for performance data management.
Alliance member organizations, which are all nonprofit, community-based organizations, will also be given increased access at reduced cost to state of the art data management systems and tools on the Social Solutions’ Efforts to Outcomes (ETO®) software platform. ETO is web-based, outcomes-oriented case management and performance management system, capable of coordinating service delivery and project management across multiple programs/grants, providers and employers.
“Now, more than ever, human service providers must incorporate data-informed decision making into their plans of work to ensure the children and families they serve are receiving efficient and effective services that result in positive outcomes,” said Susan Dreyfus, president and CEO of the Alliance. “Together with Social Solutions, we will work to build a body of knowledge and resources available to help organizations achieve meaningful, lasting results.”
“This collaboration with the Alliance will help us advance the sector in a new and exciting direction—enabling more child-and family-service providers to increase the agility of their operations, reduce costs, and most importantly improve effectiveness of programs and produce better outcomes for the people they serve,” said Scott Johnson, CEO of Social Solutions. “We look forward on embarking on this partnership with the Alliance, and developing valuable resources that will equip more service providers with the tools and knowledge they need to increase the impact of service delivery.”
The Alliance for Children and Families is a national organization dedicated to achieving a vision of a healthy society and strong communities for all children, adults, and families. The Alliance works for transformational change by representing and supporting its network of hundreds of nonprofit human serving organizations across North America as they translate knowledge into best practices that improve their communities. Working with and through its member network on leadership and advocacy, the Alliance strives to achieve high impact by reducing the number of people living in poverty; increasing the number of people with opportunities to live healthy lives; and increasing the number of people with access to educational and employment success.
