CommunityConnect Labs

About Us

CommunityConnect Labs enables government agencies and nonprofits to use digital outreach and mobile messaging to connect with hard to reach populations.

Our Story

We empower our clients through technology

CommunityConnect Labs was created by the team behind GreatNonprofits after seeing the difficulties human services providers had connecting with hard-to-reach communities. We empower our clients through technology and expertise created through inclusive, human-centered design.

We have found that the most successful way to engage communities is to meet people where they are. Our solutions leverage the existing routines and channels that community members use every day.

Our Clients

We’re proud to work with governments, nonprofits and foundations of all shapes and sizes.
