National Volunteer Appreciation Week April 18-24
It is National Volunteer Appreciation Week!
RCASA would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers that help us out year round – including our board members.  They have alot of responsibility and none of the pay.  We appreciate all the hard work they have done these past few months.  We really appreciate them!
Volunteering is the practice of people working on behalf of others or a particular cause without payment for their time and services. Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity, intended to promote good or improve human quality of life, but people also volunteer for their own skill development, to meet others, to make contacts for possible employment, to have fun, and a variety of other reasons that could be considered self-serving.Volunteering takes many forms and is performed by a wide range of people.

At RCASA, we are dedicated to caring and helping people recover from sexual violence and abuse. We provide a safe, healing environment so survivors can express feelings, be understood and have access to a range of supportive and therapeutic services
