A transporter gives victims of domestic abuse and their children a ride from a neutral place to a safe location like a safe home or a shelter. This volunteer may also give clients a ride to a doctor or legal appointment.

You will sign up for a shift. Shifts are

  • Monday through Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.


If a client needs a ride during your shift, an advocate will call you and arrange the pick up and drop off details.

We ask that with this volunteer position, you commit to at least one shift a month.


The volunteer coordinator sets up a schedule by the 25th of each month that is shared with all Crisis Line volunteers so that you can sign up or trade shifts if needed.
