Efficacy – serving as a bridge between the community and the family and prioritizing tasks based on needs of the family and the strengths of the volunteers
More Volunteers – who are able to actualize their strengths
A Comprehensive array of help
The ability to provide a longitudinal vision and plan of aid for the family, where the support continues after the initial crisis has passed.
