Court Order Community Service – Five National Non Profits to Consider

USA Flag

When you are ordered by the courts to perform community service is always mandated what services are acceptable in the courts eyes. The courts do not accept companies that are profit orientated companies to have service performed because of the profit that is involved which makes it against the law to do so. If an individual is ordered to do community service and does through a profit orientated company and does not have it approved by the courts chances are it will be rejected as community service. Therefore when doing your community service make sure before hand you are doing it for a company or organization that is approved by the courts as community service. Typically only nonprofit organizations are the only ones that are allowed to have community service performed other than working for state or city municipalities.

 

Throughout the United States of America there are literally thousands of nonprofit organizations that qualify as places to perform your community service. However some organizations do not request community service to be performed by individuals that have been ordered by the court and this is their rights to do so. Therefore make sure that you are approved by the organization to work for them under a court order to perform community service and that they will make knowledge to the courts that you have performed services for them.

 

The American Red Cross is a national nonprofit organization that you may consider to work for through your court order community service.

They have a vast network of support to individuals throughout America and are usually one of the first organizations to respond to individual needs after disasters yet big or small but a disaster to an individual.

 

Habitat for Humanity is a national nonprofit organization that does allow individuals to work off their court-ordered community service.

The organization makes the home and gives it away to the needy family at no cost to them other than working on their own home.

 

The YMCA yes is a nonprofit organization that has been in existence within the United States for over 150 years.

Today the Association is open to all men and women, Christian or not to help mentor individuals and families to cope with problems within a friendly safe environment of enjoyment.

 

Another nonprofit organization throughout America that has been in existence for quite some time is the Salvation Army. With the help of volunteer individuals and donations of all types their purpose is to supply goods to individuals at a free or a considerably reduced rate.

    • Just an idea. Try to get the Judge that sentenced you to do the hours to approve you to do your hours online. As an suggested site try Logon Online Community Services. They have a letter your can print out your computer. Asking for approval to use them to complete your hours. All you do is read lessons which help your community a better place.
