Do you have a heart for helping victims go from crisis to recovery after abuse? This opportunity might be perfect for you! We need volunteers to drive victims to safety. Have an Adventure - Travel across East Texas, the state of Texas, and the U.S. Our volunteers support victims in a direct, meaningful way!
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS WHO:
- Have a good driving record.
- Can pass a criminal background check.
- Have time to drive survivors of domestic violence from a safe pickup place in the East Texas region to a family home or shelter.
HOW FAR DO VOLUNTEERS DRIVE?
- East Texas Road Warrior
- Drive a new survivor to a domestic violence shelter 1 to 3 hours away in East Texas.
- Multi-State Road Warrior.
- Drive a new survivor to a family home in another state.
A company credit card is provided to pay for food and hotel stay.
We also provide the vehicle and pay for the gas!
INTERESTED YET? KEEP READING...
- You choose to accept or decline a drive - No pressure!
- We arrange survivor pick-ups in a safe, public place in a rural town in East TX as far south as Beaumont or as far north as Longview.
- Many of our survivors travel with children - We will provide & install car seats so you don't have to.
- There are no out-of-pocket expenses for our volunteers - we reimburse for fuel. For very long trips we'll provide a vehicle and company credit card for food and hotel stay.
- We never pick up from a victim's home or anywhere that the abusive partner might be. Everyone's safety is our highest priority!
Drivers with daytime availability are in high demand!
