Montauk to Riverhead

Job Summary

Shelter clients rely on The Retreat to provide transportation to much-needed appointments including at doctors’ offices, the Riverhead court, shopping centers, and visitations with their children. The Retreat provides a vehicle for volunteers to transport clients to these appointments. When children need to be transported, they will always be accompanied by their guardian.


Volunteers must have a safe driving record and be fingerprinted before they are able to drive clients.

Things to know before becoming a volunteer

When your volunteer application is received, the Volunteer Coordinator will contact you about attending an orientation session. All new volunteers must attend this orientation.
In order to ensure the safety and security of our clients and staff, all positions working directly with clients or in our residential shelter require fingerprinting and a background check.
Volunteers who are interested in being trained to answer the 24-hour hotline must commit to a regular volunteer schedule of at least six months and complete in-person training during The Retreat’s regular office hours.
You must have your own transportation if attending Retreat events or coming to any of The Retreat’s physical locations.
