My name is Arestia, I am Community Awareness & Prevention Services (CAPS) volunteer at the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) & I am committed to creating a community of intolerance of sexual violence. Did you know that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men are survivors of sexual assault? That means if you yourself are not a survivor, you know someone who is - this affects us all and I am proud to say I am trying to change those statistics.
And your donations can help! Here's how:
$25 helps BARCC answer two hotline calls.
$75 pays for medical accompaniment to a hospital emergency room by a trained volunteer.
$200 supports the first three sessions of free counseling for survivors and their families.
$1,000 allows a new volunteer or intern to attend BARCC’s comprehensive training program.
Any amount is appreciated, even $10. I appreciate you supporting me in something I think is so important.
