Solutions

We're changing the way human services are delivered.

Today, state and county adult & aging, child support, child welfare, and economic assistance programs and caseworkers face an uphill battle. With increasing caseloads, shrinking budgets, and caseworker turnover always looming, their need to accomplish more with less is greater than ever. Unfortunately, the outdated, paper-based systems that many agencies use make this nearly impossible.

We know the processes, and the pains, of these human services agencies intimately. That’s why we specialize in providing social services software solutions and human services technology for state and county adult & aging, child support, child welfare, and economic assistance agencies.

Northwoods software solutions enable them to dramatically reduce the paperwork burden, mobilize caseworkers and improve productivity agency-wide.

Child Welfare

Child welfare social workers do critical work, often under difficult circumstances. With so much at stake, the time and attention they give to clients has the power to change lives.
