    Answered . Usually any religious, educational, governmental (parks and recreation), hospital, or charitable organization (Humane Society, Diabetic Foundation, etc) will work. If you cannot find one on your own (which would be shocking) then you should check with the program (dollars to donuts they have a list, formal or not) of potential non-profit organizations. If you do pick one on your own (say for example that your friend Billy is a Reverend and is willing to let you dust the pews or you wanna clean cages at the Humane Society....) then you should first check with your program representative and make sure that the Rev Billy or that the H.S. is acceptable.

    Answered . Sometimes the probation officers know what organizations offer the community service hours that are approved by Court. Usually, charitable organizations, government parks and recreation churches, etc. will be approved organizations. Ask your probation officer and see if they can give suggestions in the area. Good luck.
