Representative payee and Guardianship Exact-GPS A secure solution for guiding vulnerable people's affairs
Guardian Payee Services Software
About

In 2009, Share and Care House (SCH) of Puyallup, WA and Olympic Consulting Group (OCG) of Federal Way, WA joined together to form Precision Accountability, LLC.

Share and Care House had been searching for a software application, which would address their requirements for a robust and easy to use application for the management of both guardian and payee clients. Unable to find an acceptable commercial off the shelf package, SCH issued an RFP to find an architecture and software development firm to develop a solution for their specific requirements.

Olympic Consulting Group responded to the RFP and proposed a solution, which addressed all of the requirements and offered SCH a partnership to make the application available to other guardianship and representative payee organizations.

Share & Care House (SCH) was established in 1982 by individuals of Community of Christ to provide community service in the Puyallup Washington area. They were determined to extend enhancement services with integrity and compassion to the disadvantaged and vulnerable population.

In 1986 Department of Social & Health Services (DSHS) contacted churches and other organizations in Puyallup asking if they were willing to serve as Protective Payee. SCH was the only one willing to serve.

DSHS clients began receiving Social Security benefits and requested SCH serve as their Representative Payee.

As of September 1994 SCH became automated to accommodate their increasing client base and data availability.

On October 3, 1996 Share & Care House, Tacoma Office was opened. Tacoma client base increased monthly due to the dedication of staff and volunteers and the excellent reputation of SCH in Pierce County.

On January 1, 1997 Share & Care House became a non-profit corporation and determined what their expanding mission would be:

Mission:
Provide quality service to individuals of any age, race, disability, or religion. Offer programs that help increase self esteem, enhance living skills, and quality of life.
Goal:
Share & Care House is a non-profit organization which recognizes the worth of each person.

In April 1997 Share & Care House expanded, opening a third office in Seattle Washington which encompassed King County and the adjacent counties.

Client requests prompted SCH to become a Certified Professional Guardianship Agency. Professional training was completed in 2000 and as of February 20, 2001 three staff were certified as Professional Guardians and joined Washington Association of Professional Guardians.

Throughout the years SCH has been contacted by state and federal agencies, courts, care facilities, families and friends to extend services to vulnerable people in the community. SCH continues to respond to these requests for service.

Automation has been a valuable asset enabling SCH to expand quality services to over 1,000 clients monthly. Services increased to include; Representative Payee, Protective Payee, VA Custodian of Benefits, Certified Legal Guardian, Power-of-Attorney, Trustee, Home Visiting Program, 90-Day Homeless Shelter, and three Clothing Banks. SCH serves individuals from infants through seniors in various living situations.

At its inception the people organizing SCH had a vision, but did not know where their efforts lead. The initial purpose of serving the community continues to be true today. The faces may change over the years but the goals of acceptance, increasing individuals’ self esteem, and enhancing their living skills with integrity and compassion are still embedded in the services provided.

Share & Care House has received excellent audit results from state and federal agencies throughout the years due to sound financial management procedures. Expanding services by partnering with OCG to develop software that fits the programs provided is the next logical step as SCH continues with their commitment to serve the extended community.

History

OCG’s principals and senior consultants have been working together as a team since the early 1990s. OCG’s core team came together as a group of senior independent consultants that were engaged on a leading-edge client/server development project at Weyerhaeuser Company. They quickly came to appreciate the highly effective symbiosis of their specialized skills. In December 1996, they formalized their relationship by incorporating as Olympic Consulting Group.

Throughout its history, OCG has maintained extraordinarily high standards for quality. The company has been on the crest of each new wave of technological change – agile architectures, web-based development, wireless technologies, and the original client/server revolution. The company’s longevity is directly related to its high standards and open and honest communication with its clientele.
