Social Solutions is a 90 person software company[1] headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland.[2] The company provides performance management software for thousands of human service organizations, including Harlem Children's Zone, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, [1] the Administration on Aging, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, [2] and the cities of Boston and Hartford, Connecticut. [1] Social Solutions’ software product, called Efforts to Outcomes (ETO), helps organizations measure the progress that they make with participants and families.

History[edit]

Social Solutions was founded in 2000 by Steve Butz,[3] a former human service professional with the Living Classrooms Foundation.[4] Steve and his co-founders, Adrian Bordone and Vince Griffith, were frustrated by their inability to accurately track progress when working with troubled youths, and decided that there must be a better way for human and social service organizations to have an impact on participants, families, and communities.
