The Perfect Match

The perfect match: Using Google Cloud to better serve children in the foster care system

San Joaquin County officials were struggling to place children with the ideal foster parents. The manual process required sifting through paperwork, which took too much time and didn’t always result in the best match. To better serve the foster children’s needs, officials knew they needed a completely different approach. By working with Google Cloud, this California county developed an innovative match engine to improve the quality of matches between parent and child.

This is one of them.”
