• needs;
• potentially following-up with clients more than once to reach them;
• On some occasions, reaching out to social workers in order to locate a client;
• Selecting three or four clients a week, taking into account criteria described above;
• Sending the clients' information to the visitors in an Excel spreadsheet.
To complete all these steps, you must be able to give between 3 to 5 hours over a few days.

REQUIREMENTS:
• Must have a computer, an internet connection and a mobile phone (to send and receive text
