Our Story

ServingLynk has been building software solutions for over ten years.  It started with a free volunteer management, resource and case management program Meet the Need (meettheneed.org) and then Second Harvest, the food distribution platform for Feeding America.  We look at large issues and find low cost, powerful technology solutions. 

HSLynk is our latest software solution.  We believe the single biggest technology hurdle to effectively resolving homelessness, veteran issues, human trafficking, etc., as well as healthcare with the ability to share data across platforms, regions and providers in a timely, low cost manner.
