New Feature: Ratings & Reviews

From time to time people suggest new features to add to Aunt Bertha's program search (and we love it when this happens!). One feature that is suggested quite a bit is the ability to leave ratings and reviews of program listings.

We carefully considered this feature. We asked the opinions of seekers, executive directors and foundations and came to the conclusion that we thought this was a good thing to do. With an abundance of human services in the United States, we figured that there ought to be a way for the good ones to get some recognition. We also figured there ought to be a way for program managers to update the public on things they should be aware of when applying - in a more dynamic way.

This feature is now live. Check it out. Here's a screenshot below: 

We realize that people may leave a bad review about a program from time to time. Even though each program is well-meaning, we think on average this feedback will help programs be more responsive to the needs of the community. Most of the folks we've been talking to agree.

Try it out, and if you have any questions, thoughts, concerns, comments, or suggestions - just email us at support at We'll get right back to you!
