suggested ways to connect with your matched family
When you call the family:
Gauge the conversation. You don’t have to say everything on the provided script. It is simple a guide for your conversation if you get stuck somewhere. Since the families are aware they will be receiving a call, they will most likely be open to speaking with you. Be sure to be energetic and friendly.
Ending the Conversation:
When you deliver a meal:
We challenge you to really engage with the family. Granted, some families may be shy or may not wish to return the
warmth. Fair enough. But it’s great that you’re meeting them halfway. While it can feel uncomfortable meeting new people, there’s no need to feel awkward. Some families may feel ashamed of receiving help. Be assuring. Say “thank you” and let them know you’re so glad you can do this for them.
