logoThe December Organization of the Month is RAINN.

RAINN, Rape Abuse & Incest National Network, is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization.  They operate RAINN’s hotline, the National Sexual Assault Hotline, at 1-800-656-HOPE, to connect a caller with a trained staff member at a local sexual assault service provider.  RAINN has partnerships with more than 1,100 sexual assault service providers across the country.  They also operate DoD Safe Helpline for members of the Department of Defense who have been affected by sexual assault.  RAINN works to raise the visibility of sexual violence and advance the public’s understanding of the crime. They also work on the federal and state level to improve the criminal justice system, prevent sexual assault, and ensure justice for survivors.

RAINN has a long history of collaboration with the National Runaway Safeline (NRS).  The RAINN hotline is in NRS’ database of nearly 10,000 resources for youth and families in crisis.  They have also been an active partner in National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM)  during November.  This year, RAINN supported NRPM on its social media platforms by sharing statistics and building visibility about issues runaway and homeless youth are dealing with.  In addition, they designed their own backpack icon to promote their work for NRPM.  NRS also serves as a member of  the RAINN program advisory board.
