Volunteer Application Information

Information provided on this application will be used to help us find the most rewarding volunteer service for each individual. Please fill this out as accurately as possible. All information submitted will be kept confidential.

Please Note: State law requires that people who will provide services to children and vulnerable adults, in certain health and human service and child care settings, have a background study completed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS). You may be asked to complete a background check with fingerprints prior to the start of your volunteer experience.

**A TST test for tuberculosis screening will be required for volunteers working 5 or more hours a week**

***Is this court ordered volunteer work? ____________If yes, we apologize but we are unable to accommodate your hours due to the vulnerable adults in our facility. We will run background checks on volunteers before they may begin volunteering.

If you would like more information about our background checks and why they are important, please click here.

If you should have questions please contact Tara Herold at therold@sauerhealthcare.org or call the TR office at 507-494-6290.
