Volunteer

We are able to offer free help because people in our communities care. There are many volunteer opportunities available. As an organization seeking to serve our city in the name of Jesus Christ, Care Net requires all volunteers to sign an agreement with our statement of faith, statement of principle, and moral conduct code, as well as agree to a background check, provide character references and attend a 30 hour training course. We suggest that volunteers contribute $45 to pay toward the cost of training materials.
