Why DPI Interviews Families
- We want to provide support
- Children must be identified by a state MEP “recruiter” to be eligible for services
- ALL information is confidential
- Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis, so the recruiter needs to know your story in particular to verify your children are eligible.
