About Organization:
Single Stop USA is dedicated to helping low-income individuals and families in America achieve economic security. We do this by providing participants with an innovative package of cost-free, individualized support that incorporates screening for, and access to, critical government resources with all-important financial counseling, tax preparation, and legal assistance.

Single Stop was piloted in 2001 by the Robin Hood Foundation as a New York City-based antipoverty program. As such, the program was designed to work through trusted community-based organizations to help needy individuals and families access public resources set aside to help them build economic security. By 2006, Single Stop was serving more than 70,000 households annually at 59 community partnerships. As a result of this city-wide success, Single Stop USA was established in 2007 with a mandate to expand nationally. This process began in 2009 with the launch of the Community College Initiative. This program targets low-income community college students who struggle to complete the education they need to enter, or advance in, the workforce – a struggle that is primarily due to financial insecurity. To date, Single Stop’s work at eighteen community college campuses in seven states (CA, NM, NY, NJ, FL, LA, MA) is helping vulnerable students overcome obstacles to staying in school, thus increasing their ability to graduate with skills that translate into job/career/entrepreneurial readiness, higher earnings, and financial security.
