Here are some examples of how we protect our volunteers, clients and organization:
- In order to volunteer or become a client, individuals must accept our liability agreement and waivers.
- Volunteers age 14-17 must fill out and mail in paper applications with a parent or guardian signature.
- For volunteer activity that requires face to face contact or entering a client home (i.e. rides, friendly visits, household chores), volunteers will require a background check (CORI in Massachusetts, Sterling Volunteers in other states).
- For an activity that requires face to face contact or entering a client home (i.e. rides, friendly visits, household chores), any client who is not known personally to a chapter leader or Neighbor Brigade volunteer in good standing (i.e. applies online, cold calls or referred by a social worker), should receive a background check through Sterling Volunteers (which requires computer access).
- Any activity requiring face to face contact or entering a client home with children or elderly clients will require a SORB check for volunteers.
- All Meal Preparation task should require Meal Prep training.
