How it Works

Let us know the needs you’ve got for your students or clients. We spread the word to individuals near you who are willing to help. They click a link, see the need, and send you exactly what you’re requesting, delivered right to your office.

1. Build Followers

When you sign up, we’ll give you the playbook. It’s simple and powerful.

2. Post Needs

Anytime you come across a need, simply enter it from your phone or laptop.

3. Deliver Needs

Items are shipped to you. Now for the fun part, you know what to do.
"A little can make an enormous difference. I am especially pleased with how this tool helps homeless children and families by meeting their basic needs. With the support of this program, the school social workers are able to do more to aid in the families’ growth to becoming self-sufficient and transitioning into a stable home environment."

Work for a school district?

We help support staff such as school social workers, school counselors, homeless liaisons, and foster care points-of-contact in getting exactly what their students need. If you’re doing direct support to students, you probably can post needs with us. See the FAQs for more info.

Work for a nonprofit?

Nonprofits across the country use Purposity to fulfill the needs of their clients. It might a veteran who’s being rehoused that could use some household essentials or a mom in need of diapers. If you’re doing case management and could use a way to get what your clients need, Purposity is probably exactly what you’re looking for!

Work for an agency?

We even work with government agencies. Maybe you’re a case manager at human services or working closely with individuals with disabilities through your local government. We can help you get what you need to help bridge a path to success for your clients.
