Court-Ordered Service Referral

If you have community service hours to complete, several agencies post opportunities on our calendar that indicate if they accept “court-ordered” service. If you are unable to find one that meets your needs, here are other ways Volunteer Memphis can help:

Contact Agencies Directly

If you have many hours to complete, or need to complete them within a short time, you may prefer to work directly with an agency where you can work repeatedly, or for longer shifts. Check the list below for organizations that accept court-ordered volunteers and contact them to see if they have available opportunities. You may also browse all our nonprofit partners through our Partner Directory.

Keep in mind: If you set up projects with an agency directly, they will be responsible for the final verification of your service.

Explain Why you are Volunteering

Some agencies won’t work with Court Ordered volunteers, or do so only on a limited basis. Be up front with them and explain why you are calling.

If you need to complete court-ordered community service, please refer to the list below for a list of non-profit agencies that work with court-ordered volunteers who have misdemeanor offenses. Contact the agency directly to coordinate and schedule your service hours.

Please note: FLEX Projects do not accept court-ordered volunteers and will not count towards your community service hours.
