The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
SAVI really is an excellent organization that, like the reviewer before me mentioned, helps people during one of the worst times in their lives. I really think that becoming an advocate is one of the most worthwhile things one can do to help your fellow human being (not to mention: you become a NYS Certified Rape Crisis Counselor if you're into boosting your resume). Everyone here is very helpful. Do it!
Being a SAVI Advocate enables me to "be there" for another human being at one of the worst times of thier lives. The SAVI staff is very supportive and encouraging, and really work to continously improve processes and procedures for volunteers.
