Review for Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, Inc AKA RAINN, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a volunteer for RAINN's online hotline since October 2010. I spend about 8 hours a month helping people right from my home computer. It is an amazing experience. People have told me that I have saved their lives and have given them hope. It is an extremely powerful feeling to have a person tell you that you have radically benefited their life. RAINN's online hotline is a vital resource for those impacted rape & sexual assault. Being an online hotline volunteer is both personally rewarding and manageable for people with busy lifestyles.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Maybe have more local meet-ups with volunteers? But really, it is a perfect volunteer opportunity!
