PA STATE CHILD ABUSE CLEARANCE

In addition to the PATCH report, the state also requires volunteers who regularly come in to contact with children to have a clean Child Abuse History Clearance. It typically takes three to seven days for the state to complete the search. You can apply for one free screening per year. If you have already used your free clearance request please contact [email protected] for assistance.
