Background Screening

Thank you for taking the first step to becoming an official Sulzbacher volunteer! 

We greatly appreciate you donating your time and heart to ending homelessness one person at a time. Before you can volunteer, we require all our volunteers to complete a background screening to ensure the safety of our residents.

Once your background screening is cleared in 5-7 days, you will receive an email with the volunteer application. After you submit the application, you will be invited to attend a mandatory orientation. An orientation is held twice a month and after you attend one, you will be an official Sulzbacher volunteer!

If you are under 18 years of age,  you must have an adult complete the entire process on your behalf. You will also be asked to complete a volunteer application and attend orientation as well.


We kindly ask that all our volunteers cover the $8.00 processing fee, but if you are unable to cover this cost, you can email us!
