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, Verified 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 Verified 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.
