To volunteer with visitation in addition to the requirement above you have to complete the following:

1. Mandatory Reporter Training is done online:


Go to

***Scroll down and click on Initiatives

***Scroll down to “mandatory reporting, Erin’s law” and choose “DHR Mandatory reporting training online.”

A certificate of completion is required. 

2. Background check for the Children’s Trust Fund-—- A link will be emailed or text to you
3. CA/N Form (completed at the AIM Office)   The only reason is the form has to be completed in blue ink, and I have to sign it. Do you think I should include it? I have it in pdf so people can see what it looks like
