In a community pilot program, elders receive home repair, transportation, referral and social work services. Most participants consent to participate in extensive surveys aimed at measuring program outcomes. Survey participants are assured that funders and evaluators do not receive personally identifiable information. Halfway through the trial period, the funders email to ask that the program staff select and obtain the consent of a participant for a home visit by 4-6 funder staff members. The program staff diverge in their opinion of this practice. The program coordinator believes that not allowing this could impact future funding, and that this gives a participant a positive avenue for expressing appreciation. The service coordinator sees this as an impingement on the participant's privacy, that participants may not feel comfortable with declining a visit (quid pro quo), and that many of the repairs are too personal (raised commodes, cleaned-out basements, etc.). He also expresses concern that funders might be inclined to ask about the social work services. Another staff member thinks that this could damage the program's relationship with participants if they feel the request violates what participants initially agreed to. How should the program respond to the funder's request? ~Christy B.
