MADD About our volunteers

Life is forever changed after an impaired driving crash. Victims/survivors are often left bereaved, injured, and financially devastated. With the emotional, financial, and legal issues they face on a daily basis, victims/survivors need support to confront the challenges that lie ahead. In 2005, MADD launched the MADD Helpline, a telephone support service available to victims of drunk driving 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The MADD Helpline depends on volunteers to fill the night and weekend hours when someone needs to reach out. To become a MADD Helpline volunteer all applicants must have completed a Beginning VATI training and a 3 hour training specifically for the Helpline. We are looking for Helpline Volunteers to provide victims with immediate emotional support, information, and referrals to MADD entities nationwide.

This Volunteer Opportunity can be done remotely from the comfort of your home. If you or someone you know is interested in being a Helpline volunteer, please contact Viridiana Medellin at viridiana.medellin@madd.org or 469-420-4564.
