From the Paper:"Human service organizations can send clients PowerPoints to help them with various goals and objectives to work on for the month. The agencies and organizations can send Microsoft Word documents with information on being a volunteer, or services they provide within their agency . Word documents can be sent to clients in a form of application or as a document that ask clients to verify information. The internet can provide a new way of communication to the client, and the client to the staff. The internet far out researches the limits of transportation, especially to those in a rural community. The internet is environmentally and financially beneficial for all parties involved. Human Services can use the internet to communicate using emails, webcams with clients, keep in contact with contacts, send important documents, and send by way of attachments important documents to clients or future clients. According to several internet providers, this service can be as cheap as thirty dollars per month, which is cheaper than a tank of gas for most individuals. Internet services can provide a wealth of knowledge to the human service organization to stay in touch with clients and provide and receive assistance."
