i guess i 'should' be thrilled, but i can't say that i am. i called this organization to volunteer last summer and was told [with nothing other than the phone call to go on] that since i was a survivor that my ability to make a positive contribution was questionable....... basically they said: 'we'll get back to you'. still waiting for the phone to ring. [i should add that i am a certified sexual assault advocate for dakota county in minnesota, from when i lived there].
i have serious doubts regarding becoming involved in any social institution that sees me, or other victim/survivors without investigation, as red flag material.
call me cynical, but i'll bet there's exchange of currency involved.
how did i guess?
...me at my worst,
