Get Involved! Volunteer
Every day the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department relies on volunteers to achieve the vital work of restoring inmates to social and spiritual health, so that ultimately they become productive citizens in the community. This great work is made possible by the labor of love our faithful volunteers offer – compassionate people who have learned that it is more precious to give than to receive. These are the “Everyday Heroes” who come from all walks of life and offer their time and talent to those in need. Every one of you has something special to contribute, and I offer my sincere thanks for your dedication and commitment in changing lives.
Completing the Non-Staff Volunteer Application and submitting it with a copy of your personal identification and a letter of reference from the organization you represent is the first step towards a becoming a volunteer in our department. Once you have completed this application, please contact either Chaplaincy Services for faith based volunteering or Rehabilitative Services for social service volunteering. They can be reached through our main telephone number (786) 263-6000.
Please read and familiarize yourself with our Volunteer Manual. It provides a great deal of information about our department and how volunteers can perform their services effectively.
Again, please let me emphasize how important your service is to our department and community.
Thank you for considering how you can make a difference in the lives of those inmates entrusted to our care.
Timothy P. Ryan, Director
Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department
