Current Status of Chicktime San Antonio Activities
Chicktime was recently notified by the volunteer coordinator at Seton Home that the government has changed the volunteer requirements for all agencies receiving federal grants. As such, these new rules would require all Chicktime members that volunteer at Seton Home/Casa de Milagros to submit to background checks, fingerprinting, TB testing, etc. We, as Chicktime leaders, have always undergone these stringent requirements. However, volunteers were not subject to these as long as they were under the supervision of approved Chicktime leaders. Seton Home is in the process of requesting a waiver for Chicktime since we are currently the only organization that is volunteering with the Casa de Milagros shelter. However, we will likely not have a response until sometime in the fall.
Therefore, Chicktime is currently suspending all volunteer activities at Seton Home/Casa de Milagros. We will notify you of other volunteer opportunities in the area as we become aware of them. Additionally, we are looking into other agencies to partner with. We will keep you posted! In the meantime, please check out some of the upcoming events sponsored by some of the other Chicktime Chapters in our area — Chicktime SA Central, Chicktime Hope, Chicktime Boerne, Chicktime Bulverde, or Chicktime Canyon Lake. You may find them by visiting the Chicktime website at www.chicktime.com.
We trust that God will lead us in the direction where we are needed most. In the meantime, please pray that we may have the clarity to see the path where that might lead.
