|How you help||The resilience and continuity of SARA's work depend on the generosity of friends like you. Here's how you impact a survivor's life with your gift:-You ensure there is access to hope through a 24-hour on-call advocate when survivors need one the most, over the phone and still on-sit in critical cases.-You provide opportunities for survivors to heal through teletherapy when in-person therapy is not possible. -You enable prevention specialists to train educators, faith communities, and businesses remotely so they can work to prevent sexual violence from happening in the first place.|
