Protect Who You Serve

You would like to trust that everyone working with your organization has a sincere desire to help others. For most people that is true. New headlines of abuse pop up every day, so it is more important than ever to really know who is volunteering and working in your nonprofit. With proper screening, you can ensure that everyone involved in your organization is safe.

Monitor Volunteers & Employees

Insurance requirements are getting increasingly tougher. Background Checks for Volunteers can run all the required checks needed to stay compliant with your policy. Nearly a third of adults have criminal records, making screening a necessity for volunteer and nonprofit organizations.
