 Volunteer Program

In January 2020, District Attorney Terence Houck instituted a volunteer program for the District Attorney’s Office. Each attorney on staff is required to volunteer for a minimum of four hours each month at a local organization that serves Northampton County and its residents. 
The District Attorney’s Office maintains a list of volunteer opportunities for its attorneys to choose from each month. If you have available, on-going volunteer opportunities and would like your organization to be included, please contact Public Relations Administrator Davin Jurgensen at (610) 829-6630.
