It didn't quite make headlines, but as of this May the HelpWorks software system was up and running at 9/11 United Services Group (USG), the umbrella charity organization that coordinates relief efforts for victims of the World Trade Center attacks. USG's 200 New York City employees use the system to search a database of several hundred charitable organizations, matching available benefits with each client.
