BALTIMORE--()--Social Solutions Global, the leading provider of outcomes and performance management software for human services, awarded three high-performing nonprofits with the 2016 UNITE Award at this year’s client event, the Superhero Summit. Friends of the Children, Connecticut Council of Family Services Agencies, and Area Resources for Community & Human Services (ARCHS) were announced as award recipients on the final day of the Summit in Baltimore. The UNITE Award recognizes clients who have excelled at making a meaningful impact on their constituents, leveraging data-driven performance management, and have demonstrated a dedication to outcomes measurement using Social Solutions’ Efforts to Outcomes (ETO®) or Apricot Software™.

“Social Solutions is thrilled to launch the UNITE Award, in appreciation for the work that all of our clients undertake in their communities,” said Rachel Arnold, CEO of Social Solutions. “The three organizations receiving this year’s award have all made incredible inroads furthering their mission through outcomes and performance measurement of their programs. We view them as true leaders in human services and are proud to call them clients and partners.”

The 2016 UNITE Award recipients:

ARCHS is a nonprofit organization that leverages Apricot software to help improve the lives of more than 100,000 at-risk children and their families. The organization funds and enhances education and social service programs provided at more than 350 locations throughout the St. Louis area.

Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies
Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies uses ETO software to track progress across fifteen independent, nonprofit, family service agencies that provide services to over 150,000 families annually. The organization serves as the only statewide family service network in Connecticut devoted to improving the lives of families and children.

Friends of the Children
Friends of the Children provides professional mentors for the most vulnerable youth across the United States, relying on ETO software to track and report on day-to-day program and field data. For every $1 invested in the nonprofit, more than $7.60 is returned to the community as a result of higher wages earned and less involvement with the justice system.
