You Can be the Hands and Feet Through Volunteer Opportunities

We view our volunteers as an extension of our staff. Because of this, we ask volunteers to go through a process similar to that of new employees. We ask that you complete an application, which includes references, complete a background check, and go through an orientation process. The information needed is provided below.

  1. Download the Volunteer Application and Background Check forms.
  2. Complete and return these forms via fax (816-361-8333) or mail (PO Box 22553, Kansas City, MO 64113) to Julie Karanja. On the Background Request Form, leave Section C blank. Include a very clear, legible copy of your social security card so we can complete your background check.
  3. Once your forms are received, you will be contacted by Julie for an orientation.
