Converting good intentions in to greater impact

Case Studies

It’s Time to Invest

By Sarah Beaulieu, senior advisor, Opportunity Nation; founder of The Enliven Project; and member of the Reimagining Service Council - One out of four women and one out of six men will be directly impacted by sexual violence in their lifetimes. Despite the fact that rape costs our country $127 billion per year - more than murder, more than drunk driving – it remains one of the most under-invested issues of our time.

The scale of the problem and limited resources has required anti-sexual violence organizations like the Boston Rape Crisis Center to use the most effective outreach and crisis response strategies available to them. This, of course, includes the effective engagement of volunteers.
