What happens at an intake?
You and a care coordinator meet and complete forms necessary to open your file. Your needs are discussed and barriers to meet those needs are identified. You and the care coordinator then design a plan of action to attain your goals and get your needs met.
Plan to spend 90 minutes meeting with your care coordinator the first time.
The documents we request you to bring with you are necessary to open your case at Tulsa CARES:
Proof of HIV/AIDS status
Photo ID (preferably Oklahoma)
Proof of residency, if ID is outside of Oklahoma state.
These are necessary to open your case file. If you do not have all the documentation we need we can assist you with getting these documents, but we will be unable to offer additional services until we receive them.
During the intake appointment you will also meet the counseling staff for an additional screening. Plan to spend at least one hour with them.
After your intake, do not hesitate to contact your care coordinator if you need more information or assistance.
