Serving People and Nonprofits First

Aunt Bertha’s network connects people seeking help and verified social care providers that serve them.

Thousands of nonprofits and social care providers serve their communities. But for most people, navigating the system to get help has been difficult, time consuming, and frustrating. Too many Americans are suffering, and they don’t need to.

At Aunt Bertha, they have created a social care network that connects people and programs — making it easy for people to find social services in their communities, for nonprofits to coordinate their efforts, and for customers to integrate social care into the work they already do.
