Background Checks For Social And Human Service Workers

Social and human service organizations often work with some of the most fragile and at-risk populations, including the elderly, the homeless, low-income families, people with disabilities, victims of domestic violence, and those fighting drug and alcohol addiction.

If your organization is serving these populations in need, or working with or as part of a government agency aimed at helping the less fortunate, you simply cannot risk exposing your staff or those you serve to someone with questionable character. Any kind of incident not only puts your people in danger, but also can dramatically undermine your organization’s reputation and mission.

Background checks for social and human service organizations are now essential and cannot be ignored no matter how dramatic your need for support staff. However, your screening program must meet both your need for security and for getting volunteers to work quickly.

That’s why so many nonprofits and organizations with social and human service missions turn to Sterling Volunteers for background screening.
