I joined the Rape Crisis Center Board of Directors in October 2009. Before making the decision to join, I researched the organization and interviewed with other Board members to determine if I would be a good fit for the Board. Since that time I have been active in several fund raising ventures. I am on the Audit Committee and Building Committee. I am very impressed with the commitment made by the people serving on the board as well as Lu Torres the Rape Crisis Center, Exectuve Director, and her staff. The Center is very well managed and serves the local community well. I recently attended 12 hours of the training classes offered by the center and was very impressed both by the quality of the teachers used and the materials. I also was able to tour the area set aside at UMC Hospital for the rape victims. This was very important to me as I wanted to know what the hospital procedure was for the vicims, as well as understand as much as possible the gathering of evidence etc. The more education that I receive about sexual abuse, the better I can serve on the Board and assist with continually improving the services offered by the Center.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the enthusiasm and commitment of the Staff is amazing. They work hard every day to provide the best environment and emotional support, to assist people through the most traumatic experience of their lives, as well as assistance to help them move forward.

Working with this organization shows that people do still care and want to help people and the community they live in. The Rape Crisis Center goes well beyond in helping victims and their families.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

no

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more money

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Understanding the need and how it is being met to help vicitms.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Passionate, and dedicated to helping regardles of time or day

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Buikd a stand alone building where victims could come for all that is needed, including the exam, detectives, advocates, counseling and a place to get away.

Ways to make it better...

We had more funds to reach out to more people

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding and community perseption of "ex sells" in Las Vegas

One thing I'd also say is that...

You are not alone, The Rape Crisis Center is here to help you.

My time spent serving on this board has been so valuable to me. Having gone through the Advocacy training for the group, I now know how important we are to out community. We not only serve the needs of sexual assult victims in the Las Vegas area, we also teach people of all ages, to love and repsect themselves and understand

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

serving on the board of directors for the Rape Crisis Center. We are an active board who participaate in all fund-raising and desicion making aspects of this group.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the absolute dedication of everyone involved; from staff, advocates and board members.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build it's own "Healing Center". Our long-term goal is to have our own "green" building that would be all-inclusive. Everything from a sexual assult room, staffed with full-time, qualified doctors and nurses, on-sight counseling services, & staff offices.
