New Mandatory Reporting Number FAQs
Q: What if a community partner calls the old intake number?
A: For a period of time the old intake number will have a message informing callers of the new Region 6 intake reporting phone number.
Q: Will this affect response times or hold times?
A: This change is not expected to affect response or hold times. Region 6 intake is in the process of hiring two new staff in an effort to reduce current hold times.
Q: What if a community partner calls one of the Region 6 offices directly?
A: If the office already has a phone tree, the phone tree is being reprogrammed to send the caller to the new Region 6 intake reporting phone number. If a particular office does not currently have a phone tree, the reception workers will provide the new Region 6 intake reporting phone number to the caller.
