New App That Simplifies Food Assistance, Healthcare Benefits To Help Millions Of Families In Need A new app in development could make accessing social services a much easier task for many Americans. Single Stop, USA -- a nonprofit that has served about 1 million households across the country -- is changing how families in need are learning about and obtaining benefits. The nonprofit has helped low-income families access about $3 billion in existing public and private funds for a variety of programs -- including food assistance, childcare, healthcare and financial aid for students -- by providing in-person support in applying and receiving various forms of assistance. And that support is going digital. Single Stop is developing a new app based off of its current service model that's expected to help millions more low-income families in the coming years. While the app won't replace the need for Single Stop locations with in-person support, it will allow users to navigate the system of applying for and receiving benefits more independently.
