Full-time Remote
Our Mission: To connect all people in need and the programs that serve them (with dignity and ease).

Aunt Bertha picks up where Uncle Sam leaves off by making it easy to find and apply for government and charitable social service programs. By organizing the world's human service program information, we make it easy for people in need and the people who help them to find help in seconds on https://findhelp.org.

We are looking for people who are driven to make the world a drastically better place and want to join our small group of thoughtful, committed citizens because they believe, as Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Our employees are aligned around this mission. That's why it is a requirement of our application process that you include a cover letter detailing how Aunt Bertha’s mission speaks to you. 

Please note: If our mission doesn't strike a chord with you that is OK. But please consider not applying. We are seeking people who come on fire after learning about what we do.

Resolve magazine launched in late 2019 as Aunt Bertha’s storytelling initiative, and is an especially exciting place for our mission to come alive. Resolve creates stories, articles, documentaries, interviews, columns and coverage that highlight the human side and impact of social care. Key subject areas include public health, poverty, policy, social care and nonprofits, as well as the challenges and work of helping people and communities.
