HelpingTown does not provide any background check services. For your safety and to have a safe experience with HelpingTown - we recommend running background checks in addition to interviewing other people you connect via HelpingTown and before accepting any services. Here are some of the options you can use for background checks:
Note: Please keep in mind you may require prior written consent of the individual on whom you will be performing the background check.
LexisNexis site provides multiple background check options at different price ranges.
Family Watchdog is a free service to help locate registered sex offenders in your area. Any additional background check services initiated from the familywatchdog website will require the individual’s consent and will cost more.
Please research options from both websites to educate yourself about the services that you will receive as part of the background check request.
