Who We Are

CommunityConnect Labs is a tech-first social impact organization.  We are a leading provider of technology solutions that help local and state governments conduct  outreach and engagement to their most underserved residents.  We are a fast-growing organization positioned to dramatically increase our impact over the coming years.

Last year, we served over 10 million people, to activate participation in the Census, to vote in Elections and get COVID relief.  We did this by providing mobile web, text SMS, and mobile app outreach solutions, as well as content and strategy advisory services to our clients - Federal, State and County governments.

Our Census outreach project alone yielded a 4500x ROI, providing an estimated $12.2billion in federal funding for essential services.

Our success has been recognized across the country: We are winners of the Battery Powered Award, Twilio Social Impact Fund, Amazon Imagine grant, and awards from New Media Ventures and Full Circle Fund.  Our work has been evaluated by governments and published in statistical journals.
