Building Healthier
Communities

Findhelp.org features programs in every category of the social care sector — food, utility, and housing assistance, legal help, employment support, counseling, and more.

We are constantly updating our network. When we receive notice of changes to program hours, locations, and services, our team makes updates quickly, within two business days.

Helping People First

Our mission is to connect all people seeking help with the programs that serve them — with dignity and ease. This purpose-driven approach sets us apart.

What makes findhelp.org different?

Users decide which organizations have access to their personal information and referral history. We never use “all-in consent,” which requires people to share private information with an entire network. We also adhere to existing HIPAA and FERPA guidelines to ensure organizations can live up to their own privacy commitments

We know more people can connect to help when organizations are supported in the work they do. That’s why our free tools are designed with organizations in mind — to help program staff streamline workflows, communicate with team members, track referrals, close the loop, and share program impact with donors and supporters.

Our network is available to people across the country 24/7. It’s free, safe, and easy to use. Findhelp.org is the only comprehensive social care network listing national, state, and local programs, customized to each user’s location. Our ZIP Code-based search ensures users find programs in their area that are ready to serve them and offer help.

Creating a sustainable social care network requires strong relationships with the organizations that provide care in communities across the country. That’s why we place people and organizations first, working to build trust by securing user data, maintaining user privacy, and designing tools that empower organizations.

We never ask organizations to sign contracts or enter into long-term agreements. We know you provide crucial services at critical moments, with limited time and support. We offer full freedom to use our tools and platform at no cost, with no commitment.

Findhelp.org offers connections and off-the-shelf solutions for multiple systems of record, so organizations can securely share information without having to overhaul what already works. We believe organizations should be able to choose which systems they want to work with, while retaining control over who has access to their data.

Findhelp is both a public benefit corporation and a certified B Corp, meaning we adhere to standards that ensure our work benefits not just the company, but our entire community. This includes care for the environment, for our employees, customers, and users. We don’t simply want to do good work, we want to work for the good of all.

User Search Activity


Our search platform is free and open so people can search for resources with dignity, ease, and without restrictions or gatekeepers. Our search data indicates the types of help needed most by people across the country, in all 50 states and US territories.

Click on any state in the map below to see the total number of searches by state and the most requested social needs based on findhelp’s search data.

  • Search counts by state include searches from 2015 through 2020.
  • Category search breakdown is based on data from the previous four quarters and includes a subset of searches that can be mapped to a top level category (such as food or health).
  • The category breakdown is a type of chart called a tree graph.  The size and color density of the category block represents the category proportion of overall search volume.
  • Free-text search terms are grouped into the appropriate top level category where possible and are included in the overall category percentage but are not shown in the list of specific terms.
  • Free-text search terms, program searches, and other search types are grouped into the ‘Other’ category shown in the category breakdown.
  • The category percentages shown help demonstrate the volume of searches in a top level category but should be used as an approximation, as the category grouping methods are regularly updated.
