Barb Duder: Support RVAP

I consider it an amazing honor to live in rural Iowa. One of the greatest things about living in a small community is that we come together as a family when our community is in need.

Katryn Duarte: Support RVAP

I associate HOPE with RVAP’s daily work. As a word it cannot be bought,  It does not belong to one person, to one organization, it does not have a monetary value; it belongs to each one of “US”.

Patricia Zebrowski: Support RVAP

RVAP and the people who carry out its mission provide safe harbor for victims of sexual violence - something that touches people from all walks of life and in every community.

Sexual violence impacts every single person. With 1 in 2 trans individuals, 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 6 men experiencing sexual violence at some point in their lives, even if we ourselves have not been harmed, we all know someone who has.
