ACL Mandatory Background Check Instructions
ACLs are often called upon to be the face of the HFB at on-site and/or off-site events, may be placed in positions with direct client contact, or may handle sensitive information in some HFB departments.

In our efforts to ensure the highest possible level of protection for both the HFB and for ACLs, Volunteer Services requires a Criminal Background Check (CBC) for both new and veteran ACLs. The HFB has partnered with Verified Volunteers for this purpose.

The cost of a Verified Volunteers CBC is $9.00. ACLs can choose to pay for some or all of the cost (another way to support the HFB). If you are unable to pay, the cost will be covered by the HFB. Once completed you can share your CBC with other organization with whom you volunteer, provided they also use Verified Volunteers.

Please go to to initiate the CBC. Click on "Get Started," then click "Start My Background Check." The GOODDEED code you will need is: yunn4ou
