Background Check

Easterseals Crossroads will conduct a background check on all potential volunteers. Easterseals Crossroads prohibits utilizing volunteers who have been convicted of criminal offenses that we believe, may put our consumers, current employees, the organization or the community we serve at risk. Any background check that reveals a conviction will be reviewed and considered on an individual basis. In consideration will be the nature of the crime, how long ago it occurred, and the position the person will hold while volunteering at Easterseals Crossroads. Please provide the following information needed to complete a criminal background check.
