Our Network in Ohio is the largest network of free & reduced cost social assistance in the United States. There are over 363,100 active users in Ohio who search for free or reduced cost services like medical care, food, job training, and more. We help them find those services and connect to organizations like yours that provide them.

As we experience unprecedented levels of unemployment, food insecurity, sickness, and general adversity, it’s important for us to highlight the impact our network is having on Ohioans and affirm our commitment to helping those individuals in need.

What is findhelp?

At findhelp, we created a social care network that connects people and programs — making it easy for people to find social services in their communities, for nonprofits to coordinate their efforts, and for customers to integrate social care into the work they already do. 

We support thousands of nonprofits by providing completely free access to our Open Toolkit, which gives you the ability to manage your program listings on our network, track referrals, manage team capacity, report on outcomes, and more.
