Due to the current situation involving the COVID-19 virus, Samaritan House has implemented several changes for our volunteers. As much as we rely upon our great volunteers for helping to keep Samaritan House the great place that it is, the safety and well-being of our guests, staff and volunteers remains a top priority. AS WE CONTINUE WITH THE "STAY AT HOME" ORDERS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING, SAMARITAN HOUSE WILL CONTINUE WITH POSTPONING VOLUNTEER SCHEDULING WITH THE NEW EXCEPTION FOR COURT ORDERED DEFENDANTS STILL NEEDING TO COMPLETE THEIR HOURS.AS SUCH, IF YOU NEED HOURS COMPLETED, SAMARITAN HOUSE HAS CREATED 2 LIMITED OPENINGS AVAILABLE FOR DEFENDANTS. (1) LANDSCAPING / YARDWORK AND (2) MEAL PREP & DROP-OFF FOR OUR GUESTS. BOTH OF THESE ASSIGNMENTS ENABLE SAMARITAN HOUSE TO KEEP WITH OUR "NO-CONTACT" POLICY BUT STILL ALLOW DEFENDANTS TO COMPLETE COURT ORDERED HOURS.
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 community service volunteers and must be followed at all times. Also as part of our policy, we may run a criminal background check before approval to volunteer is granted and scheduled.
