The JUS 295/495 Intership Project
2 Brochures: One for the outpatient facility and one for the Monsignor Wall Program. The Brochures will be made available in hospitals, doctor offices, churches and shelters, potential donors and grantors.
2 Client Handbooks: One for the outpatient facility and one for the Monsignor Wall Program. The handbooks will be issued to clients once they express their interest in receiving services and should be designed and communicated in a way that they understand and appreciate the procedure required for them to receive successful treatment and optimal outcomes. The handbook will explain agency procedures and tell new clients what to expect and contain useful numbers and other information.
