Families to Freedom

  • Families to Freedom’s mission is to transport victims of domestic abuse to safety. Survivors arrive at shelters across North Texas and family homes across the U.S. The organization is growing both by travel volume and service area and needs a leadership team to guide it toward a successful, long-lasting future. Families to Freedom is in a growth phase with a headquarters in Dallas, and office in Houston, and plans for a third rural office next year.

An ideal member will ensure good fiscal planning, decision-making and oversight at a governance level and offer guidance to the executive director.
