You’ve made phone calls, you’ve searched the Internet, asked around and finally found a non-profit group to help you out of a very tough situation. You know what they can do for you, but have you thought about what you can do for them? Well, the easiest answer is, “Make it as easy for them as possible.” That means cooperating in any way you can and remembering a few basic rules of courtesy and common sense. Here are a few things that will improve your experience and theirs.
- Bring any relevant documentation with you, such as insurance information or identification.
- Answer any of their questions completely and honestly. They are trying to help you.
- Let your non-profit aid group know about any medications you must take or any special medical necessities or accommodations that you or others with you require.
- Be as clear and brief as possible about the specific services you are requesting.
- Fill out all forms that you are asked to complete.
- Be patient and understanding; they have many other people to care for as well.
