About Single Stop

Through a unique one-stop shop, Single Stop provides coordinated access to a safety net worth $750 billion and services provided by 1.5 million nonprofits—connecting people to the resources they need to attain higher education, obtain good jobs, and achieve financial self-sufficiency. Since spinning off from The Robin Hood Foundation in 2007, Single Stop’s outreach and capacity has grown dramatically. By the end of 2014, Single Stop is on track to connect one million households in eight states to $3 billion of resources and services. To achieve this, Single Stop provides community-based organizations (CBOs) and community colleges with training, evaluation, program support, change management consulting, and proprietary technology. These tools empower sites to provide low-income families with wraparound services that include benefits screening, application assistance, case management, tax preparation, and legal and financial counseling.
