For anyone who doesn't know, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In honor of that, this post will spotlight several organizations.

Organization: Interact of Wake County (a United Way agency). Interact serves the women of Wake County through domestic and sexual violence prevention/victim support, awareness raising, and education.

Opportunities: You can volunteer both time and money. Volunteers apparently can assist in a variety of ways including victim advocacy, fund-raising, crisis counseling (training required), administration, etc. For more information, visit the Interact homepage.

The second organization is Rape Crisis of Cumberland County.

Opportunities: Volunteer as a rape crisis counselor (training required) or donate with info from either Volunteer Match or this ywca page.
