Mission Statement

SafeRide America is a 501(c)3 nonprofit public service agency headquartered in Atlanta. The mission of SafeRide America is to proactively prevent all types of impaired driving and to assist those affected by COVID-19 with free grocery and medication delivery.

Description

SafeRide America serves public safety by providing proactive transportation solutions to help eliminate the two most common excuses given by impaired drivers: money and having their car with them. To accomplish this goal we created SafeRide, a year round program dedicated to driving impaired individuals AND their cars for them. We prevent impaired driving tragedies before they happen. Volunteer opportunities include driving and non-driving projects.

Great opportunity to get community service hours quickly. The staff is helpful and welcoming especially Mike. I was paired with Paula and she made the time fly it was time to go home before I knew it. If you work during the day the you know the difficulties of finding time for community service, however, with saferide I could complete my hours right after work. I cannot them enough for community service as well as for rides.

Saferide is a true benefit to the community and it is a great way to volunteer. You are treated with respect, you can get a lot of hours in per shift and you can do it at night. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Awesome place to volunteer - if you want to make a real world impact, volunteer at SafeRide America & help eradicate drunk driving :)

SafeRide is great, the employees are very nice and the service offered is very important. SafeRide helps keep the roads safe by providing people with an alternative to getting behind the wheel after drinking. It's like Uber for you and your car. Great way to knock out your volunteer hours, if required, outside regular business hours.

I have volunteered for SafeRide for around 20 hours now. It has been a great experience. The staff is friendly and hard working. My work schedule is super busy Monday-Friday and they have been fantastic about keeping me informed of when they have openings. I have been imressed at how professional the drivers and volunteers are. Also, the fact that they go to different places and offer people rides without the person having to figure it out on their own is awesome! Has been a great experience.

What a great organization! Friendly team. When I volunteered here, it was so easy to keep on coming back because the team was so willing and energetic when it came to making a difference in people's lives everyday. I loved it and so will you

This is a great service. The driver was great and the time flew by. I've already recommended this to others needing volunteer hours.

A lot of hours. Learn the city. Get people home safely. Make a difference in the community.
by Michael M. (September 21, 2017)
Great service for that night out when you know you shouldn't drive home. Saferide gets you and your car home safely so you don't have to worry about leaving your car overnight or getting a ride back to it in the morning.

This is a great opportunity to serve the community if you think about it. It protects people who are alert and non drinking as well as those who engage in social drinking. It seems pretty fair and straight-forward to volunteer.

Very flexible and can accumulate hours fast. You will be done in no time

After getting a DUI, losing my job, going to jail and control of my life and had clarity on how dumb I was. I hurt myself. I hurt my family. And I could have hurt some one else. Be humble and safe Don't drink and drive. Safe Ride America is the right way to get home
by Deirdre L. (August 17, 2017)
I've volunteered here several times, and I can speak to both the service, and the volunteer opportunity. As far as the volunteer opportunity, it is a fairly easy way to earn hours. You drive your car with a SafeRide driver with you, and they are then responsible for transporting the customer home, in the customers car. No one intoxicated or otherwise is ever in your car, and the SafeRide driver handles everything! On the service side, many people can benefit from it! Never have fear when you're out with your car, and may have had too much to drink. This service is a reasonably priced way to get you, AND your car home. They have a very speedy response time, and their dispatch team will have someone out to you in no time! Save their number for the future, just in case the unexpected happens!

Great organization... Had a fun time working with them ... Good for CS or volunteer work... Definitely helping to save lives... Would recommend
by Kevin G. (August 10, 2017)
Working with SafeRide America was a wonderful experience. While spreading the word about SafeRide to local restaurants & drinking spots, people were very receptive to the idea of a designated driver service who drives both the patron AND their vehicle. There's no peace of mind like knowing your car is with you after a night on the town.

Please don’t drink and drive. Call SafeRide and be driven home in your own car. It will save you a trip back, possibly towing or boot fees, or DUI charges, and it could even save someone’s life.
by Inca-Joy G. (July 26, 2017)
Great place to volunteer when you're looking for an abundance amount of hours in a short period of time.
by Ke'Airra T. (July 25, 2017)
If you are a first-time volunteer and don't know what to expect, SafeRide is the place to go! They are friendly, simple and convenient. They're also always appreciative and grateful for your volunteer-work and that's a great plus. I would recommend this organization to anyone, even non-volunteers. Their service is helpful and does a great justice by limiting DUIs & drunk-driving accidents. The whole staff is great!!!
by David D. (July 14, 2017)
The service is amazing. Friendly emoloyees who are on a mission to help keep dui driving as low as they can.
by Dayvon P. (July 10, 2017)
I did some volunteering for SafeRide America and it was a cool & rewarding experience. SafeRide America is a true asset to the communities they provide their services to because not only do they drive you, but also your car home. It is definitely taking customer service to the next level. Keeping drunk drivers off the road an making sure they make it home with their vehicle is a service above all others. If you're looking for a great volunteer experience or you need to get home after a night of too many drinks, call Safe Ride America!!!

Saferide cares about getting people home safely. Their staff is always kind and professional and I am always happy to volunteer knowing people are not drinking and driving.
by Margaret W. from Chattanooga, TN (July 7, 2017)
The experience I had chase driving with Russel with SafeRide was wonderful!! He is very professional, extremely pleasant and has great stories...:). SafeRide America is such a blessing to our community ensuring you get home safe along with your car! Give them a call next time you are out drinking rather than taking a risk of hurting yourself or others.
by Hailey W. (June 23, 2017)
This is a very safe and awesome way to give back to the community by helping take impaired drivers off the road. I definitely recommend volunteering with SafeRide.
by Don B. (June 22, 2017)
If you're looking for a great volunteer experience, look no further! The folks at SafeRide are very professional and there's a great feeling knowing that you played a part in getting people home safely. And if you need a SafeRide, don't hesitate to pick up the phone and talk to Lisa. She'll send Brian, Chris, Malcolm or one of their other great employees out to get you AND you car home safely!
by Emily B. (June 11, 2017)
The staff here are sweet and understanding people. I'm so glad I found this place. I have volunteered all over but this place takes the cake. They are always respectful and are willing to work with you.
by Millicent S. (April 26, 2017)
I had a pleasurable experience volunteering for this company. This is a super easy way to earn hours and limiting drunk driving.
by Katharine H. (March 6, 2017)
Loved volunteering for this nonprofit organization! The environment was fun and relaxed yet professional at all times. I met some interesting people and had a lot of fun learning more about this organization! Overall, I would totally suggest completing service hours here because it is a great way to meet new people and learn about a great organization that provides a great service to people in need of a designated driver!
by Natayzia R. (February 13, 2017)
I've volunteered with them a few times, it's more pricey than Uber but you have your car in the morning. On busy nights call ahead so you aren't waiting around but they always come as promised. The drivers waste no time getting you there and are always nice. Great service!

Your organizations sounds awesome - Do you know if there is any similar setup in Cincinnati, Ohio?
by Rene A. (August 24, 2010)
I was one of those immpaired drivers, back in the 80's when I was a single, dating, women. Now that I am more mature & married. I feel as though many like myself, didn't know how to get home without driving my own vehicle. I like what you stand for and would like to help in daytime hrs.
