What about the interview?

Our interviews are typically conducted over the phone and take about 20 minutes. This is a good opportunity for us to get to know you and make sure we're a good fit!

When do I complete a background check?

You will be given background check paperwork after your interview. We require a criminal background check for all volunteers, and a motor vehicle check for those who may drive clients in their personal vehicles. This check takes 1-2 weeks upon submission.

I have more questions!

No problem! We have answers. Please check out our FAQ page.
