Court-Ordered Flexible Service Program (for Members)

Become a member. We have a "Flexible Service Program" to help our members or their family needing court-ordered community service. We monitor our participants and provide court "Completion Letters." NO third parties or complicated scheduling or systems. Work directly with us around your schedule.  We are  available to speak directly with probation officers or judges if needed. Resources are required for monitoring and reporting, therefore we can only help members.  Click on this (pdf download)  below with full details of the program's flexibility!

We are trusted by Judges and Social Workers and protect our reputation by only allowing ethical participants who are members, or their family, that support our mission through membership donations and receive our newsletter. 100% of donations are used to continue this much-needed Flexible Service Program. Lifetime Membership below is $25,  $12.50 for students. If you want to be a member but cannot afford the fee, please contact us regarding waiving the fee.
