Individual Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Homestretch! We cannot do our work without the help of our volunteers! As a volunteer, I understand that Homestretch will complete a background check. The information provided through this form will be kept confidential.

Once your application is received, the Volunteer Coordinator will follow up by email within 3 business days to schedule a 15-minute phone interview to determine the most satisfying and appropriate volunteer opportunity for you. Additional forms and a background check may be necessary depending on the type of volunteer activity.

Please note, volunteer opportunities are limited, and we may not be able to accommodate your request. However, we try our best to utilize your unique skills and abilities to further the mission of Homestretch. Please reach out to Julie Crain at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.

Disclosure for Investigative Consumer Report

Homestretch, Inc. (“ORGANIZATION”) may request an investigative consumer report about you from a third-party consumer reporting agency, in connection with your employment and/or volunteer/non-employee position and throughout your employment and/or volunteer/non-employee position if you are hired or onboarded as allowed by law.

A consumer report is a background report which may include but is not limited to, credit report, criminal background, driving records, character, general reputation, personal characteristics and mode of living.

An “investigative consumer report” is a background report that includes information from personal interviews (except in California, where that term includes background reports with or without information obtained from personal interviews). The most common form of an investigative consumer report in connection with your employment and/or volunteer/non-employee position is a reference check through personal interviews with sources such as your former employers and associates, and other information sources. The investigative consumer report may contain information concerning your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living.

You have the right, upon written request made within a reasonable time, to request from the Homestretch (1) whether an investigative consumer report has been obtained about you, (2) disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report and (3) a copy of your report. These reports will be prepared by Sterling Volunteers 4511 Rockside Road, 4th Floor, Independence, OH 44131, 855-326-1820 Option 3,
