Connecticut Association For Community Action (CAFCA) and its ten member community action agencies (CAAs) reduce the conditions of poverty by providing local services to individuals and families and referring them to state and federal programs. SMC designed and built their existing statewide client database, the “DataBridge”, which collects and reports demographic, program, service, and outcome information for individual, unduplicated clients. The DataBridge shows the total picture of client interactions across multiple agencies and programs.

Now a funder, legislator or program planner can see the positive impact of investments made in their communities. SMC also designed and implemented the online “Automated Benefits Calculator” (ABC) to help agencies, community health workers, and individuals find appropriate social services programs based on their needs, demographics, and program eligibility criteria. Together we are making progress in eliminating poverty, one client at a time.
