If you are a social worker, let us thank you. The work you do helps countless families in so many ways. It’s a thankless job, but a rewarding one for those who do not burn out. We’re behind you. In fact, it was a social worker who inspired our first free product back in 2005. She told us there were over 500,000 social workers in the US, and that they still like to use Dayplanners as their primary tool for keeping track of clients, appointments, etc. But when we heard that one of their main sources of frustration was a lack of resources for their money troubled clients, well, that moved us to action.
Shown below is an image of our dayplanner insert complete with Financial Assistance Helplines for Families. Print one out and slip it into your day planner. Print out many and give them to your counseling peers. The numbers ring into gov’t agencies, non-profit outreach groups and privately funded help centers. Calls are free. Now when a family has a specific type of financial trouble, you can give them a number for help. Please let us know how we might improve this resource. Thanks again for the valuable work you do.
