Review for RAPE TRAUMA SERVICES, Burlingame, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came to RTS after my college sexual assault by a police officer. RTS offered me counseling and also opened the door for me to volunteer as a sexual assault peer counselor. My experience as a counselor was immeasurably helpful to my healing. I was able to help other survivors of assault - children, teenagers, and adults. RTS provides me the opportunity to tell my story publicly and that’s also been super helpful - I get to educate my community and shed the feelings of shame and guilt that come with sexual assault.

Role:  Volunteer
