Every volunteer must be fingerprinted to work with Visitation House. Fingerprints must be arranged through the Diocese of Orlando using www.orlandodiocese.org
for scheduling, location, and payment. There is a $50 cost to process fingerprinting. Please contact Donna Paulin (822-6014) if the fee for fingerprinting is prohibiting you from offering your time.
