Binti works with 36 of the 58 California counties as customers, and works with agencies across 18 states. We’ve helped approve over 14,000 families to foster/adopt and over 4,000 social workers use us for their daily work. Customers include the Counties of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Alameda, and Orange, the state of Rhode Island among 120+ others. There is so much software can do to improve outcomes for children in foster care and we view our current offerings as only the beginning.
