After applying, what is the process to become a volunteer?
After submitting your application, volunteers will be called (usually within two weeks) and may also be invited to an in-person interview with a volunteer coordinator or potential supervisor to see if there is a match.

Before beginning a volunteer position, an onboarding process which takes a minimum of 2-3 hours to complete takes place which includes:

  • Paperwork including a contract and oath of confidentiality
  • County Compliance and HIPAA trainings (additional trainings may be required too, depending upon the placement)
  • In most cases a Livescan (DOJ and FBI background check) will be required but will be provided at no charge to the volunteer. Clearance must be obtained before a placement can be made.
  • An orientation which contains an overview of Health and Human Services programs
