Service Provider Tip #1:
As a provider you may want to work with property managers and other housing staff to advocate on behalf of your client, provide support and coordinate services. To have the ability to do this for and with your client, you will have to have a signed consent to release information from your client. Please remember that having a signed consent to release information is necessary to secure before they can participate in the Statewide Referral Network waiting list. Make sure to have them sign a ROI as soon as they begin working with you. The ROI is maintained in the client file
Service Provider Tip #2:
If you are training other employees within your agency or just want to practice before using the live site, you can go to the Statewide Referral Network (SRN) Demo Sever:
To access the Demo Server for training and practice, use your current user name with a password of "testing". Please note that there is sometimes a delay when new accounts are set up to get them from production to the demo server, but the trainer or regular user can use their own account to practice on the site with a new user.
