Need to Know Info
All Volunteers and Interns
Please note that due to our focus on homeless and at risk individuals and families we do require a background check through the Family Care Safety Registry.
You can go to www.health.mo.gov/safety/fcsr or call toll free, 866-422-6872 to see if you are already registered. You will need to obtain a letter from them stating there were no findings. If you are not registered there is a minimal fee to become registered.
If for some reason you appear in one of their databases you will need to contact the Registry and request the specific information on the findings to be sent to you. Once you receive the information, you will need to contact the Community Development Coordinator at 417-225-7415 to schedule a time to bring the findings in for review.
Once the application and background has been received and approved, you will be contacted regarding orientation. Orientation will be a combination of reviewing on-line resources and attending an orientation onsite.
In addition to the Volunteer/Intern application please include a cover letter or resume that will highlight your experience or education applicable to the intern position you are applying for. The Human Resource Director will review and forward to the appropriate Director or Coordinator to identify candidates to interview. Anyone selected as an intern will need to obtain their background check through the Family Care Safety Registry. www.health.gov/safety/fcsr
