I have been an avid supporter of RAINN for years. Sadly, when a teen required assistance, and both myself and someone else attempted to contact RAINN repeatedly through different media for help for the teen - phone, online, twitter, and we were completely ignored. Perhaps RAINN has gotten too large to respond to everyone in need - or just those that are not high profile (I realize that not many care about foster children, as ill as this makes me personally). I had been under the impression that RAINN existed for those who couldn't find help elsewhere, but perhaps that has changed.
This makes me sad and frustrated, because I felt RAINN was on the front lines advocating for those who really needed it.
I hope I can trust RAINN again, because I would like to provide support for those who need it.
