Seamless Compassion Solution

With the crowd of unemployment and job company layoffs on the rise and a national recession becoming a reality, our fellow residents are beginning to face difficult decisions to feed and protect their loved ones. In fact, our states have seen a 20% increase in food stamp applications over the past year and a half.

Many of our residents are applying for food stamps for the first time, and the road is not easy. Long lines, confusing paperwork and delayed decisions mean that hardworking men and women must make tough choices to ensure their family’s safety and welfare.

Making it easier to apply for these benefits doesn't just help families in need; it feeds into the well-being of our national economy.

It's easy to underestimate the economic impact and value of the Food Stamp Program, now called SNAP -- the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

“The fastest way to infuse money into the economy is through the Food Stamps program. For every $1 in food stamps spent, $1.73 is generated in local economic activity.” Moody’s Economy.com, Mark Zandi, Economist

Fortunately there is a solution, Seamless Compassion.

Seamless Compassion understands America's challenges and is here to help.

Made up of a broad coalition of non-profit organizations and community-based organizations, Seamless Compassion helps our fellow residents apply for benefits programs by leveraging outreach and an efficient, interview-driven, web-based solution.

Think of Seamless Compassion as "Turbo Tax" for benefits.

The interview allows a new type of benefits-seeker — one who is recently unemployed but may be computer literate and has internet access— to begin the process of applying for benefits from any Internet-connected computer before traveling to their local county office or outreach center.

Having the ability to feed your children is the most basic and essential of human needs. Seamless Compassion combines efficient and powerful technology with a ground-breaking outreach effort to quickly bring these resources to America, one deserving family at a time.
