If I am a survivor of sexual assault, would this affect my ability to volunteer?

No.  Many of our volunteers are survivors of sexual assault.  We have found that it is best that the assault or abuse, as well as any legal proceedings or therapy specifically realted to the assault, have occurred at least 1 year ago. As long as it has been at least one year and you are in a healthy point of your healing process, you are eligible to apply to volunteer.
