Integrated Background Checks
Help reduce risk and maintain a safe environment with background checks on all your volunteers and employees. This helps you select the right people, prevent child abuse from happening when children are in your care, and minimize liability.
We’ve partnered with industry leading Protect My Ministry to provide you with fast, affordable and thorough background checks. Integrating with KidCheck and our partner Protect My Ministry makes background checks even easier, keeps the information organized and provides immediate access to results as all documentation is automatically saved in your secure KidCheck account tied to each individual in the “people” section. Available with KidCheck Plus and Premier editions.
Simply set up a background check account with Protect My Ministry right in KidCheck, use existing personal information you already have for the individual from their KidCheck account, plus some additional data, and with the click of a button request the background check. Results will be provided typically within 48 hours. Background checks currently available for US only.
