Under North Carolina General Statute § 15A-1343 (a1) (2), judges may order “community service” as a condition of probation. Community service is non-paying work that is performed by a criminal defendant for the benefit of the general public. In North Carolina, court ordered community service must be performed at a non-profit or not-for-profit organization or agency. Examples of these types of organizations are the Salvation Army, Goodwill, Greensboro Urban Ministry, the United Way, Habitat for Humanity, most churches and many Government institutions. The following resource guides will help you find places in Guilford County to do your community service and find other resources that may be helpful. If you have any questions, ask your attorney.
