Mission & Vision

With the right support, we can all go further.

We improve the level of care for sexual and domestic violence survivors by supporting advocates and organizations in building resilience to compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and preventing burnout.

Creating awareness of domestic and sexual violence is pivotal to ending it. Supporting survivors in rebuilding their lives, including men and boys in the conversation, and working with abusers are all necessary pieces of the puzzle.

But the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of the advocate supporting the survivor must also be addressed.

“This empowering program reinforces the importance of dignity, self-respect and self-esteem. It helped us reconnect with our innermost core & our values.”

– Nidhi, 2014

We believe the support we give domestic and sexual violence advocates will enable them to have an incredible impact on the world. 

RAFT, along with its vital force of volunteers, joins domestic and sexual violence organizations—each doing their necessary and unique work—in trying to achieve a world where domestic and sexual violence is part of our past.
