Distinguish Important Mail
Put a sticker or draw a colored circle on important mail send to foster parents, so they know which envelopes are critical to open and which they can set aside.
Who Can Do This?:
The Problem It Solves
Foster families report feeling inundated with mail – policies, forms, announcements, new trainings, etc. This mail may stack up in a pile, risking that time-sensitive mailings go unopened.
How To Do This
- Put a sticker or colored circle on crucial mail, like renewal letters.

- Choose your “priority” mail wisely. If you put a sticker on every envelope, this play stops being effective.
We are still collecting concrete data, but suspect that this will:
- Help families return renewal documentation more quickly.
