Transportation for Victims of Abuse

Families to Freedom is looking for volunteers willing to use their language skills to translate for Spanish hotline callers who are victims or new survivors of abuse. Our nonprofit provides transportation for victims of domestic abuse to get to emergency shelter, and for shelter survivors to leave for family far away. We also assist with safety planning and provide referrals to other service providers. As our volunteer translator, this amazing person would work in collaboration with our Hotline Advocate team on calls when the need arises. The ideal candidate should be interested in assisting victims and new survivors of violence, have an understanding of challenges that women and victims face in society, willing to learn about domestic violence issues as part of training, and have fluent conversational Spanish and English proficiency. While this is a virtual opportunity open to anyone located in the US, our hotline hours are open from 8:00am until 5:00pm Monday through Friday Central Time. Our need for Spanish to English translation during a call would be unscheduled and requested on short notice.

Start the process at FamiliestoFreedom.org/Volunteer. For more details or answers to specific questions call 972-885-7020 or email volunteer@familiestofreedom.org

Orientation and training can be conducted virtually or in-person at our Addison, TX office.
