Enabled by a shared Information Technology platform, social service agencies can collaborate and share information to better serve clients holistically, improve the agency's ability to raise funds, provide better statistics to stake holders, and predict social services needed in the future. Social service agencies have many barriers to overcome before successful collaboration such as security, client confidentiality, choosing a software stack, cost, and agreement among the agencies on what information they can share. This paper presents practical methodologies that can be used towards the development of an IT platform to support the collaboration of social service agencies in a local community such as Johnson County, Indiana.
