Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, Inc AKA RAINN
March 29, 2011
I've volunteered at RAINN for over a year now and it has been the most rewarding experience I've ever lived. Although recently I fractured my foot, ankle and toes and have been kept in bed for about 9 months and I truly miss the satisfaction I get from knowing I have helped a survivor by being there for him/her. I believe RAINN gives to the visitors a sense of knowing someone truly cares and that there is HOPE out there for them and that by contacting RAINN they find their little space of peace with people who truly care and give of their time for the benefit of others at the same time rewarding oneself with content and the power of knowing you've helped someone through a difficult time in their lives. I absolutely Love volunteering for RAINN and expect to continue after my full recovery of my left leg.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
When someone tells me at the end of a session thank you for being there and your words have been the best medicine, I feel totally gratified to know I made a difference in the individuals life.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Add on SPANISH volunteers and the SPANISH language as many victims of human trafficking /rape consist of Hispanics.
Volunteer & I've volunteered for events that helped victims of Domestic Violence.
