RIA House, Inc. – Ready.Inspire.Act is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Framingham, MA with an ancillary office in downtown Worcester, supporting and standing with adult women with experience in the commercial sex trade and its associated exploitation, trafficking, and prostitution. We do this by providing a range of community based services that include peer mentorship, case management, clinical therapy, groups, and advocacy both in the community and in prison.
Our model, Sisters Leading Sisters, is one of accompaniment on a journey towards wholeness and healing. Accompaniment is a trauma-informed approach to care that requires understanding how power over another human being affects a person's sense of safety and control over her own life. We use a survivor-engaged, clinical team approach, with small caseloads and the capacity to provide mobile support across all levels of care. In addition, our team has extensive complex trauma training and receives ongoing clinical supervision.
Volunteer Position Description

We are looking for savvy women with professional and lived experience, women of color, transgender and bilingual women to join the team and help with fundraising to a wider base of individuals and potential service partners.
This is a volunteer, uncompensated position.
