Promptly text messages San Francisco Human Services Agency clients with important information to keep them enrolled in services.

Many CalFresh (Food Stamps) recipients in San Francisco iscover that theyve been disenrolled from benefits while trying to pay for their groceries. Its a stressful and embarrassing moment. Whats worse, some of these same people have to reapply for services from scratch.romptly stops this from happening by sending a text message to recipients before theyre disenrolled.

Promptly was built for the San Francisco Human Service Agency by 2013 fellows in collaboration with theuman Service Agencynd the Mayors Office of Civic Innovation. Although Promptly was first used to keep people enrolled in CalFresh, the app is also a flexible tool to help schedule, monitor, and send text message notifications for any reason.
