Solutions for Progress gives the following descriptive information:

Solutions for Progress (SfP) is a 20-year-old mission-driven private sector company, based in Philadelphia, that delivers practical, cloud-based services to directly assist low- and moderate-income individuals and families to move sustainably out of poverty.

The products and services offered by SfP are designed to assist individuals in meeting their financial needs both in the short- and long-term and to ultimately become self-sufficient.

Starting as a public policy consulting firm addressing complex social and economic problems, SfP’s increasing use of innovative technology led to the implementation of services in recent years that have assisted more than 575,000 households to claim almost $2 billion in work and income supports.

SfP was one of the initial 15 companies that registered as Benefit Corporations under newly enacted legislation in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. A Benefit Corporation is a new class of corporation that (1) creates a material positive impact on society; (2) redefines fiduciary duty to require consideration of non-financial interests when making a decision; and (3) reports on its overall social performance using recognized third-party standards. In 2013, B Lab certified SfP as a B Corp and listed SfP in the top 10 mid-size companies that are "Best for the World."
