Volunteer positions working directly with our guests in our shelter require a background check. Prior to your volunteer commitment, you will be asked to fill out an authorization form giving us permission to run a standard background check. This information is kept completely confidential and a past criminal offense does not necessarily exclude a person from volunteering, depending on the offense and the volunteer opportunity.
