Just Drive | Help abuse victims start a new life

It takes a lot to leave an abuser -- Courage. Planning. Resources. Help.

Assist victims fleeing from their abusers by driving them to safety! We ONLY allow our volunteers to pick-up survivors in a safe public place, usually in Houston. Volunteer safety is our #1 priority.

You choose the distance you're willing to travel - whether across town or across the country - and Families to Freedom handles the rest.

We get calls for service every day from survivors trying to start a new life, but without volunteer drivers we can only honor a few. Drivers like you are needed!

In case you are wondering--

Time Commitment: You decide! It could be a few hours, or up to a few days. It all depends on the trip length and what you are up for.

Requirements: Must be 21+, have a smartphone, pass a background check, and have a heart to help. <3

FAQ: Transporting a survivor travelling with children? We prepare the carseat for you. 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? Decline any drive you wish with no pressure from us.
