What is a nonprofit organization?

Non-profit organizations provide a service to the general public that enhance the social welfare and general well being within the community.Examples are:

  • Charity organizations
  • Nursing homes
  • Schools
  • Some government entities

You should contact that agency to verify ability, age restrictions, offense restrictions and any other restrictions the agency may have. If you are not able to locate any agency that is willing to allow you to participate in community service you should contact the Court to be set on a show cause hearing docket. The Judge will make a determination as to what your options are at that hearing.
