Document / Information Sharing Services
Private Server: For interagency collaboration, we provide a private document server, interagency staff directory, and private messaging platform for agency teams to more effectively communicate and collaborate between agencies. Using these collaborative tools, individual staff at one agency can more easily reach staff and paperwork needed at other agencies. This is essential to helping an individual or family connect to services when those service needs can only be met by the collaboration of multiple agencies.
Public Server: We also provide a document server to place forms online for public accessibility. For the public, this service provides an online repository for application forms to area services. This allows smaller agencies to share their service application forms with the public, online, even if they can’t afford their own IT department. It also allows individuals and families to start the application process for needed services even before their first meeting with an agency’s staff.
Content on the Public Document server is reviewed to ensure compliance with community standards, and placed into easily identifiable social service categories, such as “food & clothing assistance”, “mental health resources”, “housing assistance”, “financial assistance”, “transportation assistance”, etc., see full list here. Documents on the Public Document server can be searched on our platform easily by resource category or by their specific name.
Providing a central access point for communities to share social service resource information is a community investment that helps individuals and families in need through increased breadth of support.
