Our service depends on volunteers willing to give up time to help someone in need. Some positions are backstage roles supporting the organization, while other roles involve being directly involved in someone's escape from abuse.

Together We Can End Violence

Is It Safe?

The most common question we hear from volunteer candidates is asking about the safety from abusers. We do not pick up clients from their home, and we are not on the scene during police activity. We require that our clients be in a safe place for pickup such as a police station, fire station, counselor's office, a shelter, a business with security, or other safe place. During volunteer training we discuss contingency planning and we prepare you for all types of travel. For specific questions ahead of orientation, call us at 833-903-7233 or email volunteer@FamiliestoFreedom.org.

Fill out the form below to get started! Someone from our office will then contact you for a brief discussion. Expect area code 972 or 346 for that call.
