In a matter of weeks, we have seen the unprecedented COVID-19 virus sweep the world, bringing with it a staggering number of cases and tragedies as well as an all-encompassing sense of uncertainty and disruption to everyday life. And, as with any other crisis, emergency, or natural disaster that we’ve seen in the past, organizations across the social good sector have shown up in a big way.

2020 Product Roadmap
One thing that is incredibly important to the Product Team at Social Solutions is transparency. We’ve received a lot of questions lately surrounding the future of both ETO and Apricot. While we try to host User Groups around the country, it simply isn’t possible to visit every client to talk about new releases. That’s why we wanted to share our roadmap for the first half of 2020. On February 20th John Manganaro, SVP of Product, sat down and gave our users a presentation on what guides the Product Team at Social Solutions. Immediately following, our Product Owners and Managers provided detailed roadmaps on the upcoming capabilities to ETO and Apricot. Check out the videos and some of your questions answered below! read more
Organizations that specialize in early education know the importance of providing young children and their families the tools they need for success. To provide these tools and support, fundraising and grants are often necessary. Agencies such as The Office of Head Start provide grants to organizations, like yours, to support the children and families in your community during these important developmental years.
The Office of Head Start encourages early school preparation and readiness for children ages newborn to five and their families by supporting children’s growth and development in a positive learning environment through the Head Start Program. To become a part of the Head Start Program and qualify for potential grant funding, organizations are required to submit a Program Information Report each year of implementation.

And, by leveraging data and technology to increase efficiency and meet the community’s needs around after-school care, LINC continues to increase its impact by improving the lives of Kansas City families. read more
