Austin Community Service

Where do I find Community Service in Austin?

If you have been charged with a crime in Travis County, one of the easiest things you can do to help your case is to start to do some volunteer work, or Community Service.  The purpose of Community Service is to give back to the Community that you have harmed.  If you have been charged with a crime, you have been charged with violating the social contract that we all agree to in our society.  Community Service is done to try to pay back that violation of our Community norms.

Community Service can generally be performed at any entity that designated a Non-Profit (501c3), that is also not a Church, School, or Political Campaign.  That Community Service needs to be tracked and have the ability to be confirmed.  If you are completing Community Service, you can track it on a CSR Timesheet – Log.

You know that it will your case, and you know how to keep track of your hours, but where do you go to get the hours?  There are many options for Community Service in Austin.  The Austin Community Court has even issued a list of Community Service Options.  Click here to see that list.  CSR List – Austin.

If you go to that list, you will find that some of the places no longer exist.  I suggest you go to a few very great local Non-Profits that are still in business and will work for your Criminal Case.

This is a great local Non-Profit with evening volunteer hours for those that work days.
