Single Stop

Connecting People and Services—One Stop at a Time

Single Stop connects people to the services they need, including food stamps, legal assistance and health care.

Goddard Riverside launched Single Stop with the Robin Hood Foundation to help low-income families receive the millions of dollars of public benefits intended for them. It was one of the first Single Stops in the country. The model proved so successful that it's been rolled out nationwide by Single Stop USA.

Single Stop offers:

  • benefits screening, helping individuals and families access programs and services for which they qualify, including public assistance, food stamps, and healthcare
  • financial counseling for issues like opening a bank account, solving debt, money management, and, during tax season, referrals to free neighborhood tax-filing centers
  • legal consultation on issues including housing, benefits, family and custody issues and social service referrals
  • support services, including referrals to public assistance, shelters, HRA, food pantries, clothing banks and senior support services

We also provide referrals for individual and family support services.
