Court Appointed Volunteerism at It’s Best

Alternative Community Service (ACS) is an option that enables court-referred and pre-trial (attorney referred or recommended) clients to perform community service in lieu of a fine or jail term and to enhance their reputation with the Court. We actively work alongside probation officers, attorneys, and court officials to provide the best possible service to achieve a successful outcome for the client.

How to Get Started

Participants* must complete the ACS In-take Appointment Form. ACS staff will then determine if this program can support you in completing service related to a court case. Once the form is submitted you will hear from a staff member within 3 business days.  ACS staff will be in touch to determine based on your location, availability, and personal needs a community service placement and to process the administrative fee for this service. You will then receive your community service placement and begin completing your service.
