History

2004 NeedsMet started with a website that helped people find the goods and services they needed, with members in all 50 states and seven countries. People were giving away thousands of items from computers, to cars, to church pews.

2005 The Job Connection web application is launched. It enables churches to connect employers and job seekers in their congregation using technology. The Job Connection is helping churches in nine states and is an effective tool for churches to assist their members in finding employment.

2009 Stuff Connection was developed to replace the original NeedsMet website of giving and receiving in churches across the US. Custom Development started with small websites then grew to include iPhone apps and large systems.
