Leaving for Good
As a volunteer driver, you can help someone leave a life of abuse behind them

Help victims escape abuse by volunteering to drive them to safety! You choose the distance you're willing to travel - whether across town or across the country - and Families to Freedom handles the rest.

Pick-up from a safe public place, usually in Houston, going to a safe shelter or family home far away. Volunteer safety is our #1 priority! This mission is important, but impossible without YOU as our volunteer driver.

Transporting a survivor traveling with children? We provide and install child car seats. Worried about the cost of gas, tolls, food and lodging? We pay it. Don't want to use your personal car? Use one of ours. Not sure you'll be up for a trip when one comes along? Take a pass with no pressure from us.

Weekday, daytime drivers are badly needed!

Start the process at FamiliestoFreedom.org/Volunteer.php or reply here. For more details or a discussion about this role call 346-386-6767. Orientation and training can be conducted virtually or in-person in our Houston office.

About Families to Freedom

Location:

P.O. Box 1226, Addison, TX 75001, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is transport victims of domestic abuse to safety.

Description

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 the region, road trips to family homes in other states, multi-state bus tickets, and fuel assistance to relocate far away. We serve victims and new survivors across North Texas, East Texas, and the Gulf Coast area. We drive over 900 victims and children each year between two offices located in Dallas and Houston. We rely on the generous support of the community to continue providing these services at no cost to the victims who call us.
