Community support is offered by those volunteers that are approved to run programs in the facility. These volunteers range from religious supporter, to those in a drug and alcohol 12 step program, to outside agencies offering their services.

All volunteers must completely fill out an application. A background check is then performed at no cost to the volunteer. The volunteer will either be approved or disapproved by the Warden or Deputy Warden.

Once the individual is approved they are notified by the facility Counselors.

The volunteer will then secure a Volunteer badge that they are to use to gain access to the facility during Program scheduled times.

ABOUT CRAWFORD COUNTY

The County of Crawford lies in northwestern Pennsylvania. Originally it was inhabited by the Iroquiois Indians and other tribes and nations. In later years, the land was acquired by a group of Dutch investors under title of the Holland Land Company and resold to settlers. The Commonwealth allocated land to its Revolutionary War soldiers as a bonus settlement. The county was formed in 1800 from a portion of Allegheny County and named after Colonel William Crawford, an early military hero and close friend of George Washington.
