Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are the volunteer requirements?
Volunteers must be 18 or older, complete a criminal history background check and a Volunteer Agreement form. Volunteers must also attend a short orientation at the DSHS office in which they intend to serve. Contact us to get in touch with your local Volunteer Coordinator and get started.
Q: How do I get OMD started in my area?
Q: What is the time commitment?
OMD is an on-call volunteer commitment. This allows flexibility and some fluidity to our volunteers schedules. The majority of volunteer opportunities happen on weekdays during business hours. Occasionally a need arises after 5pm or on weekends. We ask that Office Moms or Dads commit to volunteering in their local DSHS office at least once per month, if only for an hour.
Q: Is OMD anywhere else beside Washington?
Yes! OMD has launched a pilot program with the State of Idaho in their Caldwell offices. Want to bring OMD to your state too? Contact Us to find out how.
