The protection of children is our first priority in Philly Deaf KIDS. That is why we require all of our volunteers to receive all the Pennsylvania state mandated background checks. The following documents need to be obtained prior to serving in Philly Deaf KIDS, or any other ministry that has contact with children. Pennsylvania law requires the three state background checks for anyone who has consistent access to children. While the list of forms might seem overwhelming at first, we are glad to provide assistance in completing them. It is our desire to ensure that every member is able to participate in Philly Deaf with their children.
