Your words and actions can save lives

Do you have a few spare hours in the day? Want to help victims 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 Houston to get victims 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 the Houston area
  • Many of our survivors travel with children - we prepare car seats so you don't have to
  • Families to Freedom provides the vehicle (or use your own) and covers all travel costs!

We need volunteers aged 21+ with a good driving record and clean criminal background.
Pick up domestic violence survivors from a safe pickup place (like a shelter store, or hospital), and drive them to a safe destination (like a shelter or a family member's home).

COVID-19: Masks, rubber gloves, and hand sanitizer available to help protect against the virus.

Start the process at FamiliestoFreedom.org/Volunteer. For more details or answers to questions, call our office at 346-386-6767. Orientation and training can be conducted virtually or in our Houston office.
