CaseFlow® is a product of Ask4Rain LLC, a company proudly based in Bozeman, Montana, USA. Produced by people with decades of experience in social work and software design, CaseFlow can accommodate any case-based human service around the world. A library of swappable program modules, fully compliant with government regulations and industry best practices, is being constructed by vetted Subject Matter Experts.
Helping the Helpers
We started this software company because social workers, NGOs and government offices are swamped with cases, and good software does not exist except in organizations with big development budgets.
The typical human service organization is under-staffed, under-funded and under-secured. Social workers/case workers must contend with the constant struggle to document thoroughly and securely, rigorous compliance with government standards, the worry of updating case studies, the tedious nature of reporting, the pressure of deadlines, and the ever-present emotional drains (and dangers) of working with needy people. New case workers require time-consuming training in matters of compliance for their employer’s field of service. If these factors are not enough to discourage them, case workers are usually dependent upon outdated, clumsy and unproductive software. Case workers are doing a superhuman job, but where is their support system?
CaseFlow is the new “Best Practice” for case work. Our software helps you with program management, case management, interventions and field work. No matter what type of clients you are serving, we can guide you with compliant workflows. Adoption, human trafficking, youth programs, elder care, livelihood training, residential shelters, food banks, addiction support, education, domestic violence, … whatever your focus, it can be managed with greater ease using CaseFlow.
