““Someone will call in and know they need help, but they don’t know how to get there,” says Ben Harrington, executive director.
“They need treatment, or they need to find a doctor. Our specialists find out the most pressing issues, and when they say they understand, and that they’ve been there too, it’s huge.
“Shared struggles are so important to someone who thinks they are all alone.””
I love this idea, having survivors taking calls so that the person calling in immediately knows that they are not alone in their struggles. If you go back with my own site for much time, you know that is exactly why I keep it up, so that child abuse survivors at least find someone out there who has been where they are.
