Hello! Thank you for your interest in joining our amazing team of volunteers here at House of Hope!

By completing this online application, you are taking the first step in becoming a House of Hope volunteer. Once you have completed the application, someone will contact you to discuss the next steps to begin volunteering.

This application must be filled out in one sitting. You cannot save it and return at a later time to finish. It will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

Please note that submitting your application online will require you to sign documents electronically. If you are uncomfortable doing this, please contact Lauren Mustelier, Manager of Enrichment & Engagement at lauren@hohmartin.org or (772) 286-4673 ext. 1004 to discuss alternatives.

If you are over the age of 18 and want to volunteer on a regular basis, you will be required to fill out a background check form at orientation which asks for your Social Security Number. We run a Level 1 Background Check on all volunteers which could include a National Criminal Search, searches of states in which you have resided and a National Sexual Predator search. It does not include a credit check.

Thank you for dedicating your time to helping end hunger and hardship in Martin County!

Liability Waiver and Volunteer Agreement

I, the above listed and undersigned volunteer desire to work/assist (hereinafter “work”) as a volunteer for Jesus House of Hope Inc., a Florida non-profit corporation d/b/a House of Hope, Inc. (“HOH”).


I hereby and, if applicable, my parent or guardian if I am a minor, voluntarily execute this Volunteer Liability Waiver (“Waiver”) under the following terms:


I hereby release and hold harmless HOH, its successors and assigns, officers, directors, employees, and supervisory volunteers, from any and all liability, claims, losses, damages and demands of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, which arise or may hereafter arise from any of my volunteer work with HOH.


I understand that this Waiver discharges HOH from any liability or claim that I may have against HOH with respect to bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from my work with HOH. I also fully understand that HOH does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide financial assistance or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health or disability insurance, in the event of injury, illness, bodily harm, death or property damage.


I hereby release HOH from any claims whatsoever which arise or may arise in the future on account of any first aid treatment or other medical services that are conducted in connection with an emergency during my time with HOH.


I understand that my volunteer efforts or time with HOH may include various activities which may be hazardous to me and I hereby expressly and specifically assume the risk of injury or harm in these activities and release HOH from any and all liability for injury, illness, bodily harm, death, or property damage resulting from the activities during my volunteer efforts or time with HOH.


I hereby give HOH consent to use my words and to record, videotape and photograph my image and/or voice to be used in the agency’s promotional and marketing materials such as, but not limited to, brochures, newsletters, websites, social media, videos, and press releases to media outlets.  I further understand that no special compensation will be provided to me for use of my image, words or voice and that I may not be informed in advance of such use.


I expressly agree that this Waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the State of Florida, and that this Waiver shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida. I agree that in the event that any clause or provision of this Waiver shall be held to be invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not otherwise affect the remaining provisions of this Waiver, which shall continue to be enforceable.


I understand that my time at HOH may include handling highly personal and confidential information pertaining to employees, clients and HOH.  I will not discuss or share any information that I hear, read or witness with other co-workers/volunteers (except when necessary with the applicable supervisor) or persons outside of HOH unless by order of a court of competent jurisdiction or required by law. I further understand that to do so will be considered a breach of confidentiality and is grounds for discipline, up to and including termination of your volunteer position and possible legal action.


By submitting this application, I affirm that the facts set forth in it are true and complete. I understand that all information obtained during my involvement with House of Hope will remain confidential. I understand that false statements or omission of facts called for on this application are a basis for dismissal as a volunteer regardless of when they are discovered. I understand that I am not applying for employment, but rather a volunteer position that can be terminated at any time by me or House of Hope. I understand that I may be asked to complete a background check or submit to random substance abuse testing at any time during my volunteer service with House of Hope.
