Your words and actions can save lives

Do you have a heart for helping women go from crisis to recovery after domestic abuse? Want to be directly involved in a life saving, life changing service? This opportunity might be perfect for you!

Travel across North Texas and the U.S., have adventures you'll remember for a lifetime, change lives as a driver, and support victims in a direct, meaningful way!

Families to Freedom transports victims of domestic abuse to safety.

We need volunteers aged 21+ who have a good driving record, clean background, and time to drive survivors of domestic violence from a safe pickup place in DFW to a family home far away. Great for those who are a little adventurous minded and want to be personally involved in changing lives. For those who aren’t hip to long drives on open highways, we also need drivers to go across the metroplex to help victims arrive to domestic violence shelters.

Choose your own adventure!

+ Multi-State Road Warrior - Drive a new survivor to another state

+ North Texas Road Warrior - Drive a new survivor to a domestic violence shelter 1 to 2 hours from DFW

+ DFW Road Warrior - Drive a new survivor in DFW to a domestic violence shelter in the metroplex

Choose your favorite or collect all three!!

  • 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
  • Families to Freedom provides for the vehicle, fuel, food and other travel costs- no out of pocket expenses or floating costs for reimbursement, especially for multi-state travel


Weekday daytime volunteer drivers are in high demand!!

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.
