Mission Continues along with Volunteers of America will provide cosmetic remodeling (painting) of housing units in a veteran focused apartment building, Hope Manor.
Hope Manor provides immediate housing for up to 50 veterans in need of intensive services at the point of referral and affordable housing with rental support for up to 30 veterans who require less intensive services, but longer-term rental assistance. Hope Manor is about much more than simply housing veterans – the goal is to help veterans improve their lives over the long-term by promoting self-sufficiency, building new skills, creating strong support networks and integrating veterans more positively into community life.
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
