Don't ever under estimate the value of volunteers. Volunteers are the reason non-profit organizations stay afloat; they provide an incredible savings while also offering invaluable skills, insight, passion & dedication.

The JCOC has opportunities for individuals, families, groups and businesses. Check out how to get involved below and fill out our Volunteer Information Packet to get started!

In even a short time of service, our volunteers touch hearts and help change lives. And volunteers say their hearts have been touched, as well. You may never know the impact you have as a volunteer!

If you don't know where to start, the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center can help you figure out where your talents can fit into helping others.

Court-Ordered Community Service

The Judeo-Christian Outreach Center offers those convicted of non-violent offenses to complete their court-ordered community service obligations helping the less fortunate members of our society.

If you have been ordered to complete a community service obligation, the JCOC would like to help you fulfill this obligation to the court and we could really use your help. We feel that everyone deserves a second chance and who knows? You might want to join us after your obligation is complete because the work we do is rewarding.
