“I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve been volunteering with Abuse Hurts: the incredible community of charities, shelters, centers that Abuse Hurts is part of….so many caring individuals wanting to make a true difference within the life of others! It’s such a pleasure doing small works that become a part of something bigger/meaningful. Plus, it’s fun to be part of the volunteer ‘force’!”
