Helping our clients buy and sell homes is what we do. Creating the vibrant communities that our clients want to live in, is why we do what we do. There are many organizations in Madison and the surrounding areas of Dane County that advance equity, ensure community safety, highlight diversity, and improve quality of life through research, direct services, and support. The Alvarado Real Estate Group is committed to supporting these organizations and their work to improve the places where we live, work, and play. Because it matters!

Today, we want to highlight one of those organizations: the Dane County Rape Crisis Center  

The Dane County Rape Crisis Center

Serving Dane County since 1973, the Rape Crisis Center (RCC) provides services to survivors (and their family and friends) of all forms of sexual violence, including recent sexual assault, past sexual assault, incest (past or present), sexual harassment, and sexual exploitation. These services are provided free of charge and include crisis intervention and support via the 24-hour Helpline (608-251-7273), the Spanish language line La Línea (608-258-2567), short-term counseling, support groups, medical and legal advocacy and accompaniment, community education and outreach. RCC also operates Chimera Self-Defense Designed for Women, and Safer Bar.

Volunteering

Rachel Glaza, the Team Manager at Alvarado Real Estate Group, is also one of the Rape Crisis Center's 24-Hour Helpline Volunteers. Here's what she has to say about her experience:

Being a Helpline volunteer has put me in direct contact with victims (and members of their support network) who are going through very difficult situations. It's given me a whole new perspective on community safety, on supporting neighbors and friends, and especially, on supporting organizations like RCC who, day-in and day-out, advocate for justice and safety.
