You

workers to use modern social networking technologies to track cases better, see
the connections among the various people and agencies involved cases, be more
effective and efficient, and improve the quality of life for families and
children.

About Us
Case Commons’ mission is to transform public sector human
services through technology. Case Commons enables workers serving the most

software tools. Casebook™, Case Commons’ marquee technology, is a
collaborative, family-centered case management system that leverages the
capabilities inherent in social networking technology for the public sector
child welfare segment. A growing number of policymakers believe that Casebook™
can be a citizen portal for government services, including health, education
and human services. Case Commons is funded by the $2.5 billion Annie E. Casey
