Court Ordered Service Hours Volunteer Policy
Samaritan House works with the local court systems as well as other county and state courts to provide opportunities for those sentenced and required to complete court ordered community service hours.
Below is the Samaritan House Court Ordered Service Hours Volunteer Policy that applies to all those signing up to complete their court ordered service hours. Please read this policy thoroughly as well as the Samaritan House Volunteer Policy before signing up to complete your court ordered service hours.
Also as part of our policy, we may run a criminal background check before approval to volunteer is granted and scheduled.
COURT ORDERED SERVICE HOURS VOLUNTEER POLICY
Samaritan House works with local courts as well as other county and state courts to offer opportunities for those sentenced to community service hours, it is up to each community service volunteer to maintain and complete their required hours and to do so in a professional and respectful manner.
Once a community service volunteer completes his/her required service hours or is discharged before completion, they will be provided a letter verifying the hours they have completed.
Those volunteering for court ordered community service MUST show up for any scheduled time they agree to and MUST sign in and sign out in the Volunteer Log Book. If a community service volunteer cannot make a prior scheduled time, they are to call Samaritan House to advise them of the change. If a community service volunteer fails to notify Samaritan House Volunteer Coordinator of any changes, the volunteer may be discharged from future service.
All other volunteer policies apply to court ordered service volunteers and must be followed at all times.
