Ashley Birchler is a front-desk volunteer at Bivona Child Advocacy Center. Thank you for all that you do, Ashley!
How did you first get involved with Bivona?
I first got involved with Bivona through RESTORE, one of their 22 partner agencies. RESTORE is a sexual assault service agency that advocates for any age.
Is there any particular thing that you find to be the most rewarding about your involvement with Bivona?
The number of children who experience abuse before they turn 18 and the frequency that American women fall victim to sexual assault is difficult to comprehend. Bivona’s Team offers help and they stand up for each child or person, working with them to heal and find justice. Knowing that I play a part in the process of healing is amazing.
As an active volunteer, do you have any advice for other people who are interested in volunteering with us?
Do it!!! Knowing that your time alone is helping to positively change lives is the most fulfilling feeling.
What are three words you think of when you think about Bivona?
Helping, Healing, Support.
