Who is Aunt Bertha anyway?

Aunt Bertha's the Aunt we all had growing up. She tells it like it is. She's the first one to give you a high-five when you make the honor roll. She's the friendly face that won't judge you when you get in trouble. She's who you call when you get real with yourself, and you’re ready to not do it all alone.

Our Beliefs

  1. We believe everybody should be able to find program information in seconds.
  2. We believe people can and will help themselves with the right tools.

  5. We believe software should never get in the way of helping people.
