Application Process

Please ensure to understand our volunteer program guidelines:

  1. To process your application, we require a $25 background check fee due to the sensitive nature of our work.
  2. In determining placement of a volunteer, equal attention is given to the interest of the volunteer and to the requirements of Friends of Guest House.
  3. After both the application process and an interview, volunteers must attend an orientation before working directly with our staff and clients.

Together, we can transform community perceptions around women who have been incarcerated.
