Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, Inc AKA RAINN
April 6, 2011
Being a RAINN volunteer is an amazing experience. You receive excellent training and supervision and are connecting with people in genuine distress, which is incredibly challenging but very meaningful and important work. I feel like being a RAINN volunteer is one of the most important things I do, even though it's only 8 hours a month, because you are helping to empower people and sometimes to even save their life.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The visitors to the hotline that decide to not hurt or kill themselves, the people who have never opened up to anyone else but feel supported by you
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Get more people to volunteer, give a training on basic helping skills
Volunteer & National Sexual Assault Online Hotline.
