Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, Inc AKA RAINN
March 28, 2011

As a survivor who has pretty much healed, I wanted to be able to help others, using my experience. I found this organization perfect as I work full time and being able to be home on the computer for an hour or two a few times a week is perfect. I think doing this work has helped so many people who had nowhere to turn. Just knowing they are talking to someone who understands really helps them. I've been told, "you are the first person I've ever told". What an honor that is! Then being able to give them some information in order to take some of their own power back is a great feeling.
