Are you ready to get out of the house? Want to help women go from crisis to recovery after domestic violence? This volunteer opportunity might be perfect for you!
Families to Freedom transports victims of domestic abuse to safety. This often means a short ride across DFW to get to a domestic violence shelter.
Weekday daytime volunteer drivers are in high demand!!
You can choose to accept or decline a drive- no pressure!
We arrange survivor pick-ups in a safe public place usually in or near DFW
Many of our survivors travel with children- we prepare car seats so you don't have to
We need volunteers aged 21+ with a good driving record and clean criminal background. From a safe pickup place in DFW to a shelter destination either local or longer distance, your time to drive will directly help save survivors of domestic violence. Pickup locations are typically from a shelter, hospital, or retailer stores. Masks, rubber gloves, and hand sanitizer available to help protect against COVID-19.
Families to Freedom provides the vehicle (or use your own) and covers all travel costs! For survivors with small children needing a car seat, we'll take care of installing so you don't have to.
Start the process at FamiliestoFreedom.org/Volunteer. For more details or answers to specific questions call for an Operations Manager at 972-885-7020. Orientation and training can be conducted virtually or in our Addison office.
Our mission is transport victims of domestic abuse to safety.
Families to Freedom provides free transportation services to victims and their children who have experienced domestic abuse. We make it possible for victims and new survivors to get far away from abusive relationships. Our life-saving services include car rides to domestic violence shelters across North Texas, road trips to family homes in other states, multi-state bus tickets, and fuel assistance to relocate far away. We serve shelter survivors across North Texas as well as hotline callers not yet in a safe place. We serve over 550 victims and children each year, and relies on the generous support of the Dallas community to continue providing these services at no cost to clients.
