Cornerstones accepts a limited number of volunteers seeking community service hours for court related matters. Individuals who are charged with or convicted of a traffic or criminal matter, including those hoping to accumulate good-faith hours pre-court may be accepted on a case-by-case basis after being interviewed by a Community Resource Coordinator. Only those whose offense is related to a non-violent misdemeanor and/or non-violent felony may qualify. Individuals must have availability for a minimum of one 2-hour shift any day(s) Monday – Friday between 7:00 am – 2:00 pm.
Prior to serving at Cornerstones, all court-related volunteers must:
- Identify themselves as a volunteer seeking court-related hours and specify the number of hours needed with the due date to our Community Resource Coordinator.
- Send in all court referral documents to our Community Resource Coordinator.
- Pay a $50 administrative fee.
- Recognize that volunteer opportunities are typically limited to maintenance work at the Embry Rucker Community Shelter with our Building Manager.
Court-related volunteers must keep a record of their hours using an official Cornerstones volunteer log provided at the Embry Rucker Community Shelter. Individuals who break volunteer protocol and/or are found tampering with their hours will be removed from service and no documentation of service will be provided.
Please contact Adrian Chadwell, Coordinator of Volunteer and Community Engagement, at 571-323-3675 or Adrian.Chadwell@cornerstonesva.org for more information.
