Confidentiality Statement:

I understand that by my electronic signature above, I am obligated to the following conditions:

- I will protect the confidentiality of all clients in this facility;

- I am not permitted to disclose any information obtained during my visit regarding clients of Catholic Charities Diocese of Kalamazoo (CCDOK). Federal law prohibits this disclosure. Criminal penalties will apply in cases where information is disclosed without consent.

- I agree to remain only in the areas approved for my visit, and if supervision of my visit is required, I agree to cooperate with such.

- Unless specifically approved by the Security Officer/CCDOK staff, I agree not to transport any data, records, equipment, or other media off of the agency premises.


ARK SHELTER ATTENTION: For their safety, clients are not allowed to receive any objects, makeup, personal items, or clothes without inspection by CCDOK staff. Drug or weapons of any kind are not allowed at CCDOK. You are encouraged to leave all personal objects (i.e. purses, bags, backpacks, cellular phones, cameras, etc.) in your car as they will not be allowed in the client units. CCDOK is not responsible for them.


I certify that all information provided by me is correct, accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge. I authorize both CCDOK and persons listed (references, schools, current (unless noted) and former employers and any others with whom you desire to check) to communicate with regard to any relevant information that may be required to reach a decision on my volunteering with the Agency. *For short term volunteers (individual or groups) this information is not required.
