TYPES OF VOLUNTEER SERVICE:
GRACE offers bi-monthly volunteer orientations for both new and Community Service Restitution (CSR) Volunteers. We ask that all CSR or New Volunteers complete orientation before they begin.
We offer new volunteer orientation twice a month for anyone who is interested in getting started volunteering at GRACE. GRACE offers many types of volunteer opportunities that would fit into anyone’s schedule. During the volunteer orientation you will learn about the GRACE mission, all services and programs that GRACE provides to our clients, GRACE Resale and Donations, volunteer opportunities and GRACE needs.
Community Service Restitution (CSR) Orientations:
Community service orientation is for individuals who have court appointed, attorney appointed, or school appointed community service. Community service orientation is MANDATORY before you can begin volunteering at GRACE. During the CSR orientation one needs to bring their paperwork from the school or court. At this time you will be ask to commit to dates and times that you will volunteer. The application will be provided during orientation.
*Please Note*: Please bring your court paperwork to orientation. Due to the nature of the work we do here at GRACE, we cannot provide community service restitution opportunities to persons with theft, burglary or fraud, violence of assault charges or charges related to these.
As of 2/19 GRACE can accept felony charges on a case-by-case basis, and has the right to not accept some cases.

Eagle Scout or Community Project Volunteers:
Most group projects do not require volunteer orientation completion, and involve a brief planning meeting with a GRACE Staff Member. Those interested in participating in a volunteer project can contact Development & Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
