Coalition to Shelter - VOLUNTEER SCREENING - Newtown, PA
Coalition to Shelter  - Today's Homeless Look Like You and Me
CSSH requires a mandatory background screening for all volunteers.  This ensures the safety and security of other volunteers and homeless guests on code blue nights. 
Procedure for Background Screening
1.  First, you must sign up and complete volunteer training.  Sign up for a training session can be done through our Volunteer Training Page on this website.
2.  Once training is completed, you will be given an instruction sheet with a web address which will allow you to complete the background screening process.
3. Once you are cleared, you may sign up to volunteer. If there is a question about any information on the background check, the officers of the board will be consulted and a final decision will be made about eligibility. 
If you have any questions or concerns please email us at or call 215-371-3945.
