A special message from our new Volunteer Coordinator


(Note: Due to current public health concerns, volunteers could be exposed to or expose others to COVID-19 while performing volunteer duties and must follow protective measures implemented by the Service and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). With that said, we do require masks and physical distancing while volunteering.)

  1. Please submit a volunteer application below
  2. A background check is required for all Detroit Area Agency on Aging (DAAA) Volunteers.
  3. Download the DAAA background check release form by clicking here: DAAA Volunteer Background Check Form.
    1. The background check will collect information from the Michigan State Police iChat system encompassing criminal history, and national sex offenders list and will remain on file for five (5) years before another check must be completed. Please remember that these background checks are solely for the protection of the vulnerable population we serve.
    2. Even if you have proof of a background check or police clearance completed within the past 3 years from your place of employment or another organization with which you volunteer, you must complete a separate background check with DAAA. This is a new form effective October 1, 2020.
    3. The form is fillable – a physical signature is not required
    4. Tier A Volunteer Opportunity does NOT require SSN, DOB = not client facing (loading HMOW, Outreach Bag Assembly)
    5. Tier B Volunteer Opportunity requires SSN, DOB, Full Address, Driver’s License #, Full First and Last Name = Client-Facing (having in-person and/or in-home client contact, access to a client’s personal property, or access to confidential client information – this includes Holiday Meals on Wheels delivery)
