Welcome to SocialServiceData.org, a project of One Degree! We’re collecting and presenting information about community resources and social services in a new way, and we wanted to have a place to document and explain our approach in depth. This is that attempt.

We welcome your feedback, comments, ideas, contributions, and constructive criticisms of these standards. We believe in an inclusive, collaborative approach, and we’d love to work with you. At the same time, we’re fast-moving. Real families and social work professionals use our information every day, so we don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Feel free to drop us a line or comment on a specific page.

We’re looking forward to developing these standards more over time. With your help, we can revolutionize social service discovery so that everyone can find the help they need, when they need it.
