“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, Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services Juvenile Court Services and Adoptions Bureau
“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, San Francisco Family & Children’s Services
“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 for Resource Family Recruitment and Approval Division in Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services
“Whenever we have an issue or feedback, Binti adjusts things so quickly. It’s amazing!”
— Terry Poalucci, Resource Family Approval Social Worker, Tuolumne County Social Services
“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.”
— Debra Dobbs – Glenn County
