A high priority of Lapapoe is quality, safety and security. We therefore, have strict safeguarding requirements that applicants must meet before joining the registry. This includes the following


Criminal History: Lapapoe conducts a criminal background screen on all Partners before joining the platform. This is conducted using a third-party background check vendor. We must receive the results of this check before applicants can be accepted to the registry.


Sexual Offender History:Lapapoe uses Georgia’s Violent Sexual Offender Registry to screen applicants. This is the central repository used by Sheriff’s Offices. All applicants must pass this screen.


Licensing and Professional Certification Verification: Lapapoe also checks the licensing and professional certifications of applicants. Lapapoe uses the Georgia Secretary of State Professional Licensing Portal to conduct this search.


CPR/ First Aid Certification: Lapapoe checks the First Aid/CPR certification of applicants. This is done through the American Heart Association eCard Search or the American Red Cross certificate search.


Right to Work:  In order to ensure applicants have passed the required immigration and security protocols to serve families in Georgia, we require applicants to submit a state or federal-issued form of identification.


Phone or video call: We conduct a video or phone call with all applicants. This is to get an understanding of their motivations for working with children with additional needs.


In order to ensure the upmost accuracy with background checks, we do recommend that families conduct any further checks that they require prior to hiring.


The qualifications and certifications of partners are checked through the Georgia Secretary of State Professional Licensing Portal. Further to this, all partners portray their certifications on their profile. This includes a description of their experience, areas of need and ages of children worked with.

Families are also able to converse with partners prior to booking.

Partners must pass all initial background checks to be accepted onto the platform. Any individual who has not passed the checks, will not appear on the platform.

Once a partner has been accepted to Lapapoe, we re-verify background checks every six months.
