Learn How Binti Works
“I don’t think we could do the work that we do without Binti. As such a large agency, it’s invaluable to have the ability to track our families from that initial call all the way until they are caring for children. Not only does our team benefit from the software but we are also very happy with the real-time responsiveness of the Binti team to the needs of our staff, the families, and our community partner agencies.”
Karen Richardson, Deputy Director
“It would have been so beneficial to have Binti from the very beginning of implementation of resource family approval. I can’t say that enough. We really struggled without it. The staff is really seeing the benefits of Binti. It’s also user friendly to applicants. Applicants can go in and do everything online and see where they are in the process. Due to Binti, we’ve been able to reach a wider community base. It helped increase the number of community inquiries in a huge way. We were getting 4-5/month, now we’re hitting over 20/month.”
Sophia Isom, Permanency Program Director
“In 22 years in social work, I’ve never seen a program go live so quickly, be so useful to our work, and have people come to hear our feedback and improve the software based on our feedback. Also when we reach out, your team is so helpful.”
Susan Tucker, Assistant Regional Administrator
“Whenever we have an issue or feedback, Binti adjusts things so quickly. It’s amazing!”
Terry Poalucci, Resource Family Approval Social Worker
“I really like it and I was the most resistant! I am not computer literate and was scared, but it’s easy to figure out 99 percent of the time and the support I’ve had with Tara has been wonderful.”
“Without Binti during the pandemic we would have struggled to keep operations moving forward in a safe way. Binti allowed our staff to work from home and have instant access to all the documents and information needed to match children with families, license families, and track conversations with families.
Binti has reduced the time it takes from assessor assignment to licensure by 11% and as we continue to understand Binti and as Binti makes enhancements we anticipate that percentage to increase.
The staff have all been extraordinarily responsive, helpful, and focused on continuous improvement to meet the ever changing demands of the Child Welfare sector.”
Jessica Thompson, LISW-S, Director of Foster Care and Adoption
“Binti has helped me TREMENDOUSLY in terms of recruiting efforts and keeping track of people. I am now able to reach back out to large swaths of people via email and text in a way that I wasn’t able to do before. This has helped me bring people into training that might have let their idea [of being foster families] go.”
