A Note about Fulfilling Required Volunteer Hours:

If you have a set number of volunteer hours to complete for a class or assignment, thank you for considering doing those hours with our agency! However, understand that we do not always have placements readily available that will meet your needs. Our volunteer opportunities are based on the needs of our clients and the availability of our staff to train and supervise

**Our office does not provide court related volunteer hours at this time**

 


Case Notes

It is very important for us to document all client interaction. Since volunteers are often working with clients , they need to help us document interactions as well. All volunteers are required to document any direct service complete with a client. If you are not willing to do this, you will not be able to volunteer with our program.  Please use the link for this purpose.
